Happy Monday everyone.
Congrats to everyone who ran races this weekend, there were PR's all around.

Tonight is the longest of the tempo runs for this cycle. Or 45 minutes worth of tempo around Hains Point. For those running MCM, next week we will drop down to 30 minutes, while the Richmond folks will stay up at 45 minutes for a couple more weeks. 

September 24 HPT tempo run

Hey errrbody,  I hope you are having an exceptional Monday morning. 
The plan for tonight's tempo run is 42 minuted worth of tempo, which means we need to go all the way around Hains Point counterclockwise.
Aside from that, the rest of the workout is pretty standard. Next week we are doing our last set of hills for the fall, AKA 10 absolutely glorious hill repeats. 
See you all tonight.

September 10 HPT tempo run

Happy hurricane week everyone, I hope you are ready for a straight week of rain! 
First things first, congrats Uncle Richie (I think this name is super creepy, but he seems to like it) for his one millionth Boston qualifier yesterday in Erie. 
The plan for today is for 36 minutes worth of tempo. Which once again puts us all the way around Hains Point in a clockwise direction. Next week we transition to counter clockwise. 
See you all tonight!
