April 22 HPT Tempo Run

We're between training cycles, so tonight we'll run straight back from the Jefferson Memorial (two miles).

 

April 8 HPT Tempo Run

Hey everyone, the end is here. Cherry Blossom was yesterday and Boston is next week, which means our training cycle is over.
 
Congrats to everyone who ran Cherry Blossom:

  • Anna with a 1:04 and a 3 minute PR
  • Miguel #2 in 59:45  for his first sub 60
  • Carrie in a 1:12
  • Mike Tosto who is back to running

The plan for today calls for 15 minutes worth of tempo, which means we will go around the Buckeye drive cutoff, but not all the way around Hains Point.

After this week we will take a few weeks off. This doesn't mean no group run, just that we will play the workout by ear, and go a little shorter.

See you tonight.

 

April Fools HPT tempo run

I don't have a clever April fools joke to introduce today's email. So we will just talk about running.

The plan for tonight calls for 30 minutes worth of tempo. That means we are still running all the way around Hains Point this evening, but we will start the tempo from the tennis courts and go clockwise.

Bonus, you will receive 5 HPT points for every tourist you knock over during the run. HPT points can be redeemed for salsa cups at district taco once start going there.

See ya tonight.
