October 29 HPT Tempo run

First of all congrats to all of you who ran Marie Corps Marathon
Bobby with his 5 minute PR at 2:44 
Miguel Matta at 3:03 
Ian at 3:21
RIP Mike Tosto's foot may it rise again like a phoenix in mid-December.
Also, Bobby claims he ran really hard but judging by this photo he was taking it far too easy. 
Tonight is an ad-hoc kinda night. 
Richmond folks should still be doing 30 minutes of tempo. Philly should be doing 45. Everyone else should be taking a little time off. 
Se ya tonight, it's gonna be nice. 

October 22 HPT tempo run

Happy Monday everyone! Today should be an exceptionally nice evening for a tempo run. 
Today the plans officially diverge, which means that we will have distinct groups running the tempo portion of the run. 
MCM folks should be doing 10-15 minutes at race pace, which means just doing the short portion from Jefferson to Georgetown. 
Philly and Richmond people are still doing the whole HP loop tonight and the last of the 45-minute tempo sessions. 
See you all tonight. 

ctober 8 HPT tempo run

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

St George 
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.
