Marathon Training Update- 1 Day to Go!

am: 20 min jog with Sumo, 1 x 800 in 2:45, 800 cool down- Why the 800?

According to Anderson, researchers at the University of Western Australia have uncovered a new protocol for boosting muscle glycogen before a long race. Athletes following a typical high carbohydrate diet were asked to perform a 150 second high intensity session (130 % V02 max) followed by a 30 second all out sprint. The next day muscle glycogen levels were found to have increased by 82% over the day before

I forgot about the 30 second all out sprint. Heading over to Seattle in a couple of hours.
