Beautiful day for a run

So after waking up a little late, I headed out on this beautiful day to start a little Yasso's 800. For those unfamiliar with this training technique , let me explain. It is interval training where you run half mile intervals. I want to run a marathon in 3 hours and 10 minutes so I have to run my half miles in 3 minutes and 10 seconds. It trains your body for more speed than you need so when you relax the pace, things become comfortable.

I did 6 intervals and lets just say they kicked my ass.
I ran them at
3:00, 3:10, 3:20, 3:30, 3:30, 3:33
I also tried to run a little lighter on my feet and ended up pulling something in my backside, lol
I have to get comfortable with the six intervals , running them all at no more than 3:10 , then i have to make my way up to 10 intervals before the marathon.

I have already talked people into running for this charity. The first unofficial event is on November 19 in Philadelphia. They are having a marathon , half marathon, and an 8k( which is about 5 miles). If you would like more information about any of these races please go HERE
I am talking to some people about getting shirts made for the race and that information will be released as soon as it is finalized. We can use all the runners we can get.......sign ups will be coming soon.

Whenever I tell people about the training they look at me as if I am crazy.... I mean I guess I have to be a little crazy to try to cut 50 minutes off last years time...Tomorrow I look forward to a comfortable run maybe with a little weight lifting afterwards.....

Things to look for in the next week
