Season of Pentecost -- Ember Days
I think the Ember Days actually predate the Octave, so that may explain their placement. The Byzantine rite begins the Apostle's Fast the second Monday after Pentecost, which lasts until the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.

I do not believe one is required to fast on Sundays.

I just saw this and realized that the original post was from 2011. No wonder! I think I find this thread through a yahoo search and just assumed it was for this year. I'm so stupid or at least attention deficit like that.
