July 21 HPT workout... Hills!

Hey everyone, you all ready to run up some hills? then down some hills? then up them again? Yep you guessed it, it's time for another hill workout.

 
Meet at Iwo Jima 6:30 and warm up by running 3 miles, cemetery --> Mt. Vernon Trail --> Roosevelt island parking lot --> Roslyn. 
 
We will start the hill repeats at the corner of N Oak Street and Lee Highway (just north of the Marriott), and run up the Custis trail to the bridge over 66. That gives us half a mile of uphill running for each repeat. 
 
For this week we will move up to 6 repeats, and a 1 mile cooldown, for a total of 9 miles. 
 
This workout is starting to get very long, you should definitely bring a water bottle with some salt and sugar for it.
 

July 14 HPT workout

July 14 is Bastille Day which means that our tempo workout will be replaced by the Club's Bastille Day 4 miler.
 
The race starts from Fletcher's Boathouse at 7:00, so you should get there around 6:15 to check-in and get an adequate warmup. 
 
Also, get excited, next week is hill week again. 

 

 

HPT Tempo run 07/07/14

After an incredibly nice Independence Day weekend, looks like we are going to have a slightly warmer and more humid Monday night. Not to worry though,  what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

For tonight's tempo, we will start at the Iwo Jima memorial at 6:30, warm up to the Jefferson Memorial. For people meeting us on the DC side, we will be at Jefferson around 6:55, gather up front of the snack stand on the SW side of the memorial.

We will start tempo from the Jefferson memorial, run under the 14th street Bridge on the west side of Hains Point, continuing to the intersection of Ohio and Buckeye, crossing to the other side of Hains point, making a left on Ohio drive, then a left on Basin Drive to the Jefferson Memorial, finally following Rock Creek trail all the way back up to Georgetown. 

The plan is 25-26 Minutes tempo, which should get us from the Jefferson Memorial to somewhere near Georgetown on the Rock Creek trail.

After tempo we will all gather back up at Virginia Ave and Rock Creek to jog back to VA. 

see ya tonight.
