May 22 HPT Tempo Run

Good morning people! 
It's MONDAY let's go do some tempo running. 
I should have the full summer schedule posted by next Monday, but this week is still the short tempo. 
Start warm up from the bike racks at Iwo Jima --> warm up to the Jefferson Memorial  --> Tempo up the river to G-Town (corner of VA and Rock Creek) --> cooldown back to Iwo Jima. 
Since it will likely be raining tonight I say we hold off on group dinner. 

May 15 HPT Tempo Run

Hello everyone, welcome to your weekly reminder that summer misery is coming, but it's thankfully not quite here yet. 
Our structured workouts will start the second week of June, so until then we are still operating on the lazy kids / short tempo plan. 
In case anyone needs a reminder. 
Start warm up from the bike racks at Iwo Jima --> warm up to the Jefferson Memorial  --> Tempo up the river to G-Town (corner of VA and Rock Creek) --> cooldown back to Iwo Jima. 
If anyone is interested, tonight might be a good night to get post run sweaty district tacos or chipotle. Let the group know if you are up for it. 
See ya tonight.

May 8 HPT tempo run

Hey everyone, I don't think we are going to have too many more evenings like this in the coming weeks so we should make the most of this weather.
We are still a few weeks away from starting a new structured training cycle, so tonight will be the standard 3 mile warmup from Iwo to Jefferson, 2 mile tempo on the river, and mile and a half cooldown from Georgetown back to Rosslyn. 
Looking forward to seeing everyone.
