Meet above the Iwo Jima Memorial or near the Jefferson Memorial for a warmup, tempo run or hill repeats, and cooldown.


Meet at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington at 6:50pm, warmed up and ready for drills, strides, and stretching. We'll participate in the regularly-scheduled club workout (usually or fartlek) at 7:30pm.

Jan 15 HPT tempo run

We're back on the roads for 24 minutes of fun tonight. We'll start clockwise around Buckeye Drive.


Jan 8 HPT hill workout

Happy Monday everyone, the weather for this evening is a little iffy, but for now we will still plan on having the workout. Worse comes to worse it will just be Cole and I running FTW in freezing rain. Which is not at all the perfect way to get sick AF. I'm also using millennial abbreviations because I hear it's what the cool kids do.  
We are supposed to do 4-6 hills today, but we can modify that to circuits under the Whitehurst freeway.
