800 Repeats

>> Friday, May 08, 2009

Just a quick note regarding my 800s on the track last night. I got down there late, and decided to do 800s because I had only been doing 1600s all winter, and it was time to do something shorter and quicker.

So the workout was six 800s with 90 seconds rest.

2:40 (1:20 + 1:20)
2:38 (1:18 + 1:20)
2:36 (1:17 + 1:19)
2:37 (1:18 + 1:19)
2:36 (1:17 + 1:19)
2:34 (1:16 + 1:18)

2:36.8 average

About a year ago, I ran seven 800s with an average of 2:46. So I’m doing OK this year. Let’s keep this up! Back with a Friday Funny shortly, but now, back to grading. Yay.

How did you determine the appropriate pace for your 800's?

Good repeats -- great pace! And, way outta' my league. Last track intervals I did were 4 x 800 @ 3:20 w/400 jog between, sandwiched by 1.8 easy miles to/from the track.
