Meet at 6:00 pm at the Fullerton Courthouse parking lot next to the Fullerton Loop trail (where we meet for the Saturday morning runs), and just across from the Ralph's gas station parking lot. Or, meet at 6:15 at the Fullerton College track.

Warm-up run from the meeting area to the Fullerton College track on Berkeley Avenue, then a cooldown run back to the Courthouse.

Get some speed work in while it's still cool out! Track work out using Yasso 800s. Start with four 800 Yassos and then add 1 Yasso 800 each week.


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!
