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.

November 13 HPT Tempo Run

Happy fall Monday, everyone. 
Looks like tonight is going to be a pretty awesome evening for tempo. We are still doing ad-hoc tempos for now so we will decide what to do once we get to the Jefferson Memorial. 
Congrats to Andrew Simpson on his 3:02 in Richmond.
See you all tonight.

November 6 HPT tempo-hill workout


First of all congrats to our resident Ukrainian cyborg Mike Tosto for running 2:59 in Indianapolis, way to go, Mike!
Second did you all catch Shalane screaming F*$& Yeah! at the end of the NY Marathon? if not here is the link
As for tonight, in theory we need to do hills, but in reality we will do whatever the group wants to do. Either way, let's meet at Iwo Jima at 6:30 and we will figure it out from there. 
Real schedule coming at the beginning of December. 
See you all tonight. 

October 30 HPT Tempo Run

October has come and gone, and so has the warm weather (hopefully). 
The plan for tonight is the same as it's been for the last few weeks:
  • Warm up from Iwo Jima to Jefferson
  • Ad-hoc tempo from Jefferson to Gtown
  • Cooldown from Gtown back to rosslyn
I really don't have much else to say besides, see you tonight.
