Way to go!

Sounds like you're doing Yasso 800's (except they're suppose to be closer to 5K pace I think). With the exception of this past season I usually do Yasso 800s on the track in the last six to eight weeks leading up to my taper before a marathon. As Bart Yasso suggests, I try work up to doing 10 of them at the pace I want for my marathon time (10x 800 at 3min, 30sec pace for a 3:30 marathon. I think I'm going to try to work on some 1600m intervals next season.

I haven't run in weeks, so I haven't got much to contribute to the daily report. But I did sort of enjoy Yasso-style 800s, even though I've always had a tough time with track work in general.
