June 18 HPT Tempo run

Hey everyone, sorry for the super late email today. 

 
I hope you all are ready for the most warmest evening of the year!
 
Thankfully we are only doing the shot version of the tempo tonight. Iwo - Jefferson - Gtown - Iwo. 
 
As a reminder, the schedule for the summer is posted on the HPT section of the site, but since most of you never go there, here it is.

As always this is targeted Marine Corps Marathon with tempo runs every Monday except for the first Monday of the month, when we do hills. 
For tonight, we are still doing the short version Iwo -> Jefferson -> G-Town  (where Bobby will swim in the fountain like Ovie) -> Iwo. 
 
See you all tonight. 
 

June 4 HPT Hill Workout

Hey everyone, it's the first Monday of the month, which of course means that this week is hill week. 

 
Sadly I will not be able to run the workout this week since I was able to "requisition" my office caps tickets, and Dylan is in Chicago furthering Jeff Bezos' Dr. Evil plan to take over the world. But I will be there to get things kicked off. 
 
The plan for this evening calls for 4 Custis hill repeats, just enough to get a little bit of sweat going. 
 
Our structured plan for the summer will start two weeks from now, I will post the schedule next week.
 
See ya tonight.
