- Friday: rested, moped, called 15 doctors to find one that could see me in a reasonable time frame AND took my insurance.
- Saturday: 4.37 easy miles with Mike along the river. No pain. I'll admit, I had a split second of, "Could I run the Bronx half tomorrow?" and then I said, "Not gonna do it."
- Sunday: 6.3, sort of. Lots and lots of walking while the friend I was "running" with tried to pretend like she didn't mind.
- Monday: rest. 10 hours of sleep Sunday night, though. 10 hours.
- Tuesday: rest, again.
- Wednesday: 5m - Yassos at the track.
- Thursday: Um, nothing.
I set out to do Yassos* on Wednesday, but instead I ended up doing something in between Yassos and speedwork. My goal was to do 4 Yassos this week and then work up. I thought I'd aim for 5:00 for each. Well, I kind of missed it, entirely.
My times for the 800: 4:50, 4:44, 4:40, 4:30 (okay, so I turned it up a little for the last one)
I'm not heartened by these results. First off, they're erratic. Granted keeping a set pace wasn't my goal - my goal was staying under 5, but these are too erratic, suggesting that I don't know what I'm doing. (Ahem. Accurate.) It's been ages since I've done speedwork with regularity. Something to work on.
And of course I also saw the doctor. More on that later...
This weekend: super exciting double-race weekend! 5k on Saturday and 10m on Sunday.
*If you're not yet familiar with the Yasso, read this. In short, Bart Yasso developed the theory that you can take your marathon goal time in hours and minutes (say, 4:45) and use it as your 800 time in minutes and seconds (again, 4:45). Build up to doing 10 of these before your marathon, and you're in good shape.
