Comments: Had a bit of trouble with Gandalf at start and didn't manage to start him until I had run more than a km. However after approx 4km I attempted to run 4 x 800 yassos which means I tried to run them in 3:58 with the same length of time jogging between each 800. Now, I was battling a strong head wind and I couldn't figure out how to set the laps so I will read the instruction booklet more carefully and try again when I'm not rushing after work. The first 800m was pretty close to accurate but I forgot to stop the next one at 800m so it was about 825m in 4:01 which is not what I was aiming to do. The next two were about that time too so I will definitely have to find a set 800m distance and run that in the required time. Next week I will be more organised and try for five. Maybe I should follow Lucky Legs' example and go to the AIS track for those sessions! It was very difficult battling the elements and I had to make a mad dash to the loo on the return trip. At least the weather wasn't too hot tonight, just plain windy!
