September 18 HPT tempo run

It's September, but don't worry, it still feels like August so tempo runs are going to be just as pleasant as summer, except longer. 
We are up to 42 minutes worth of tempo today, which means that we will be going all the way around Hains Point counter clockwise, and all the way back up to Georgetown. 

September 11 HPT Tempo Run

Hey Everyone, it's Monday, tempo Monday!
But before we get to that, congrats to everyone who ran early fall marathons this weekend. 
Christie who got second overall at the Via Marathon
Rodrigo with a PR 
Kyle who also ran VIA
Alison and Dan Smith who together crushed Erie. 
Tonight's tempo consists of 39 minutes worth of tempo, which will take us all the way around Hains Point counterclockwise, and back up to Georgetown. 

September 4 HPT Hill Workout

Yep, you read the subject line correctly, today is hill day! 
Since it's September, and we are getting close to our fall races, we should probably start doing a little more volume. That means a total of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 hill repeats! This is a pretty long workout, which means that bringing a water bottle to the hill portion would not be a bad idea.
See ya there!
