Meet at the Fullerton Courthouse to run together to Fullerton College Track.

There is usually a good amount of us on the track between 6:00-7:00, so don't worry if you are running late -you can hop into the workout at any time!

Warm-up and cool down around the track.

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!
