RunningFriends4Life

ALWAYS FREE for ALL.

Track work out.  Yasso 800s starting with 4 Yassos.  Look for the track our first time at this venue.  Call me if you cannot find us.

What is Yasso800?

Yasso 800s are a popular workout among runners who are trying to achieve a specific marathon goal. The name "Yasso" comes from Bart Yasso, the chief running officer at Runner's World magazine, who popularized this workout. Here's how to do Yasso 800s:

•Take your marathon goal time in hours/minutes and convert this to minutes/seconds. For example, if your marathon goal is 3 hours and 45 minutes then convert that to 3 minutes and 45 seconds.

•Try to run 800 meters (approximately 1/2 mile) in your converted time (3:45 in this example).

•Recover after each 800 by jogging or walking for the same amount of time (again, 3:45 in this example)

Come join the fun

    Question: where do we park?

    September 9, 2013

    • Jimmy

      Becky, parking will be anywhere close by, Robin said the track is located at the end of University Drive and Sycamore

      My suggestion would be to park somewhere near the orange circle and walk to Chapman.

      All streets right around the University are permit only.

      But you can park for free four hours anywhere on the plaza, But it's a little bit of a walk, so leave early.

    I will try my best to get there by 6pm, I may be a little late. I get home at 5:30 and have to change first. FYI: Wed nights I wouldn't be able to do. I have choir practice at church that night.

    Do you only do this track workout on Tuesday evening? Any other days, or evenings?

    September 9, 2013

    • Jimmy

      Hi Adriana, for now only on Tue nights, I will see how the turn out is going to be, if more runners want to meet on Wed night, I may change it later. Is Wed night good for you if we change it later?
