Ha! Had ya there for a minute, huh? No worries, a BQ is not in my near future.
Tuesday, I ran with my group and then was supposed to hit the track for Yassos. (800's) But there was a football game going on. And no parking spaces. So I just gave up and went home and watched a war movie. So Wednesday, which is usually yoga night, but I still can't put weight on my wrist, I headed BACK to the track to get in my Yassos. Annnd another football game. Texas. This time I managed to find a spot to park so I set out to do my Yassos in the neighborhood using the route Sare Bare and I mapped out last time I Yasso'd.
My goal this time was 4:15 Yassos. But really, secretly, I hoped to run them in 3:58. I know, secret from whom? I play these games. My first Yasso was 3:39. Ooops! Fluke, right? Well check out my 6 Yassos: 3:39, 3:37, 3:32, 3:35, 3:37, 3:38. Um, yeah. 4:15 my bony pink butt. If Yassos are supposed to be an accurate prediction of your marathon time, I BQ'd all but one of them, ha!
I only ran 23 miles this week. Taper makes me nervous. 23 miles? Eek.
I have no idea what to expect from this race. I trained for a 4:30 marathon but I just don't know. We'll find out in just over a week!
Side note: I can't wait to see this girl and this girl next week in DC. And of course this girl (that I can see anytime in Dallas but will still be fun to hang with in DC with everyone else because she is awesome!)
Do you Yasso? Do you feel it was an accurate prediction of your marathon time?
