Inaugural 2014 HTP tempo run

The time has come, let's do some tempo running!
As I pointed out two weeks ago, we will typically start at the Iwo Jima memorial at 6:30 on Monday nights, warm up to the Jefferson Memorial, and run tempo from there.
The plan for today is 15 Minutes tempo, which should get us from Jefferson to somewhere past 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.
For tonight we will go with Chipotle recovery right after the run.
See ya there

HPT Tempo Workout 8/26

Hey guys, after last week's hill run extravaganza (leg destruction fest), we are back to tempo run this week.

Meet at on the sidewalk above the Iwo Jima Memorial (14th and N. Meade) at 6:30pm.


4 Miles from Iwo to the bathrooms on the west side of Hains point, where we will make a quick water break.


32 Minutes at your 10 mile – half marathon pace.

Ohio drive, Jefferson memorial, Rock Creek park trail all the way to Georgetown.

Gather back up at the parking lot/stop lights at the intersection of VA ave and Rock Creek Parkway.


Back to Iwo Jima via Key Bridge.

If you don't feel like coming to Iwo Jima for the start and finish, on Ohio drive beneath the 14th street bridge around 6:55.


HPT Hill workout 8/19

Three weeks have gone by, and it's time for another hill workout. Since there have been no other suggestions or strong pushes for a change in location, we will stick with the Custis Trail 800s.

For this week if you are preparing for a fall marathon you should do 7-8 repeats at just below your marathon pace.

If you you are training for shorter distances 5-6 should suffice at a little quicker pace.

the repeats are 800 meters up the custis trail, from the corner of Oak street and Lee Highway, to the Highway 66 overpass, and obviously 800 meters back down. This workout becomes really long really fast, so be careful not to overdoit at the beginning.

Let's meet at Gateway park, corner of Lee Highway and Lynn street at 6:30. We will go for a 10-15 minute warmup, and then begin the repeats.
