Weekly Schedule

Each week will include two workouts and a quality long run. The exact schedule will depend on participants' goal races.


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.


Meet at North Meade Street Park in Arlington for a long run (pace varies). Start time corresponds with the club Saturday Long Run.

July 16 HPT tempo run

Seems as though the summer has returned after a week-long reprieve. But not to worry, the tempo is still fairly short, and we may find some water fountains that actually work. Does anyone know the status of construction on the canal at lock 3 (30th street)?
Today we are supposed to do 18 minutes worth of tempo, which means that starting next week we get to go all the way around Hains Point instead of running the buckeye cutoff. 
I propose either Cava or Tacos for post run food, but leave up to the group to decide. 

July 9 HPT Tempo run

Welcome to week 3 of the 2018 summer training cycle
The plan for today calls for 15 minutes worth of tempo, which means we get to start running the Buckeye street cutoff on Hains Point. 
Dewpoints and relative humidity are going to really low this evening, so it should be an exceptionally nice summer evening to run tempo. 
See you tonight. 

July 2 HPT Hill workout

Hey everyone, it's July and today is the first Monday of the month, which means we get to do hills. 
Tonight's plan calls for 4 hill repeats, which considering the July heat should be just enough to put us all in a state of delirium. That said, you should probably bring a water bottle with some sort of electrolyte solution in it. 
See ya tonight... can't wait.

Gathering Points:
Repeats: 8 x Custis Trail from the Air Force Association/RRCA building to the bridge over I-66 (800m)
