August 13 HPT tempo run

Happy Monday everyone! 
I really don't have much to say about this tempo day, except for its 27 minutes long, and we are going all the way around Hains Point. 
Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight. 
P.S. Reply all if you want to get tacos post run.

August 6 HPT Hill Workout

What's up, everyone? 
It's the first Monday of the month, which obviously means that it's hill workout night! The plan for this evening calls for 6 hill repeats. 
It's going to be a warm and long workout, so make sure you bring some fluids. 
See ya tonight. 

July 30 HPT Tempo Run

Hey everyone, happy Monday! 
I don't have much to report on today, but get excited about two things. 
1. Today we get to go all the way around Hains Point. 
2. Next week we get to do hills.
So we have that going for us, which is nice.
Tonight's plan calls for 24 minutes worth of tempo. We will start the tempo at the east gate by the golf course, run all the way around the point and as usual, end at the intersection of VA and Rock Creek. 
See ya tonight.
