** Last of three shots, lumbar epidural steroid injection, to fix Sciatic nerve issues.

Really trying to move my run schedule around to accommodate this procedure.  What was going to be Sat & Sun workout will be moved to Mon & Tues, more than likely.  Thus Tuesday moved to Wednesday.  Then back on track.

I tried to squeeze it in but wasn't feeling good at all yesterday and still really tired making the transition off nights.  Feel much better after 10 hours sleep this morning!  Off to get the shoot.

800s

10' wu, 10' cd. You are going to run 10x 800 at the same time as your goal marathon pace. For example, if you want to run a 4:05 marathon, you will run the 800s in 4:05. If you are going to run these without knowing the distance, then run them at LT -5 beats. Your recovery is equal to your work time. 4:05 work time equals 4:05 recovery time.
+++++
I'm' using 1/2 mile instead of 800y. Completed on track.

Here's how I interpret this:
I'm planning on a 4 hr marathon so my pace here should be a 8:00 min/mile. I couldn't remember the rest period so I guessed at 2 minutes, which now I see is half the rest time in the plan. I think this is fine because my heart rate was down well below aerobic after 2 min rest.

01) 04m 11s; 0.52 miles; 08m 07s/mile; 154; 164
02) 04m 11s; 0.51 miles; 08m 08s/mile; 155; 166
03) 04m 10s; 0.52 miles; 08m 03s/mile; 155; 170
04) 04m 08s; 0.52 miles; 08m 01s/mile; 159; 171
05) 04m 06s; 0.51 miles; 07m 59s/mile; 162; 172
06) 04m 12s; 0.52 miles; 08m 07s/mile; 160; 170
07) 04m 06s; 0.51 miles; 07m 58s/mile; 160; 170
08) 04m 12s; 0.52 miles; 08m 04s/mile; 157; 168
09) 04m 08s; 0.52 miles; 07m 59s/mile; 158; 167
