Workout Wednesday: Yasso 800s

Yasso 800’s are a classic workout that I suggest for those trying to determine a potential marathon pace.  Build up to 10 x 800 repeats at your goal pace (ie.  if you want to run a 3:30 marathon then 3 min. 30 would be your interval time for each 800) with a 400 meter jog recovery between.

Looking for a Coach?  I would love to work with you.  I train people from all over the world and USA.  I have been coaching for over 25 years and have coached people for sprints, wrestling nutrition, sprint distance triathlons, 5K, 10K, 1/2 and full marathons, BQ athletes, 70.3 and full Ironman events.  I also work with non-runner that just want to get fit or eat better to loose weight.  I offer full custom coaching services in person (local) or on-line (for those farther away).  Message me at theblonderunner@gmail.com if you’d like to learn more.  I especially love to work with beginners.  Happy Training!

Coach Lora Erickson: Lettuce Explain Podcast Guest

May 9, 2017 by  
Filed under Fitness, News, Nutrition, Product Reviews

As you might remember, last month I participated in the Oceanside 70.3 Ironman event.  It is always so enjoyable to get away from the cold of Northern Utah and enjoy warmer temperatures.  While I was there I was able to visit one of my long time friend and she invited me to be interviewed on her new podcast.  I was so excited to participate and talk about my triathlon experience.  My friend and her friend, both dietitians, started the Lettuce Explain podcast and cover great nutrition and fitness topics.  It can be found on iTunes, Stitcher Radio or Google Play.  I was interviewed for Episode 008 which was released today.  Here’s a link if you’d like to listen.  It was so much fun!
