Miles or "miley things." We've not done the latter for a while. It goes like this:
3-4 x 400-300-400- @ L (400) Note that this adds up to a mile, when you count the floats.
3-? x 1 mile @ L (400)
You can, if you like, play mix and match between the floats and the miles.
11-? x 600 (20-25 sec) @ T
People tapering for Heartbreaker will do this but probably limit themselves to 8 reps.

Assuming the floats are 100m, doesn’t 400-300-400- come out to 1400m? How does that equate to 1609 meters? What am I missing?
THE OLDER I GET, THE BETTER I WAS.
PROUD TO BE A PAFAR!

You can do this truly Yasso style (running the repeats at 1/60th of marathon time (e.g., 3:15s correspond to a 3:15 marathoner), or at M pace (which will get you about the same result.
Lasso's marathon prediction workout involves doing 10 of these. If anyone wants to do that, that's an option. I don't find Yassos to be as predictive as Bart Yasso himself does (I could run them at paces corresponding to at least 25 minutes faster than my actual marathon time), but I do think it's a good workout. And, if you can't run the Yassos associated with your marathon goal, you may be wise to rethink the goal.
That said, the main workout will be lower volume:
6-8 x 800 (400, as described) at about M (or Yasso pace, your choice)
For those wanting something else, we'll do long alternations. We don't do a lot of that on Tuesdays, mostly Fridays. The formula will be 600/200, run at 12K/MP in sets of 1.5 miles miles.
2-4 x 600/200/600/200/600/200 (400)
That's a wide range in volume. Most of you will probably do 3 sets.

This week is a second round of Billats. Other options will be decided on site based on who shows up.

A. Round 3 of Billats. For those wondering about the goal, it's four rounds in 4-5 weeks.
B. 8-11 x 600 (20-25 sec). This is mostly for those wishing to start a Shamrock taper on Tuesday.
C. 2-3 x 3K tempo intervals (2 min one-lap jog recovery) for those not wanting to do Billats.

3 - ? x 1 mile @ L (400) This is largely for people with April marathons or other long races
10-? x 500 @ L (1 min) run in groups
8-11 x 600 (20-25 sec) @ T. This is largely for those with races this weekend for which they are tapering.
