MLK Day HPT Tempo Run

I am not sure who is around this evening or if you have already run during the day, either way,  tempo is on at the normal time. Way to go everyone who ran the race this weekend, especially Noah for running the best tangents and being by far the most sophisticated and scientific trainer of the group. 

 

Noah 1:12:16
Bobby 1:12:43
Matt 1:16:12
Mark 1:18:03
Christie 1:20:41
Joe 1:26:05
Will 1:29:15

See ya tonight.

Jan 13 HPT Tempo Run

Happy Monday everyone.

 
It's already mid-January, and yes, we are actually a few weeks into our training cycle. This also means that we are already up to 24 minutes worth of tempo.
The plan for tonight is still to run the buckeye cutoff and back up to Georgetown. Times and places same as always.
 
Congrats to those who ran the 10-miler on Saturday.

Jan 6 HPT hill workout

Happy New Year everybody!

 
We get to start the year off by doing a nice quick hill workout. The plan for tonight calls for 4 hill repeats, which should be a perfect little workout to really get us started in this training cycle. 
 
See you all tonight.
