May 19 HPT workout -- hills!

Get Stoked, this will be our first hill workout for HPT.

We will keep it short and simple this time around.
Meet at Iwo Jima 6:30 and warm up by running 3 miles, cemetery --> Mt. Vernon Trail --> Roosevelt island parking lot --> Roslyn.
The repeats will begin 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 keep it to 4 repeats, and a 1 mile cooldown, for a total of 8 miles.
See ya there.

HPT Monday Tempo May 12

Still doing the same thing as the last two weeks, but not to worry, next week we will do the first set of hill repeats.
But for tonight
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 meet us in front of the snack stand on the SW side of the memorial), and run tempo from there.
The plan for today is 17 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.
See ya there

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
