June 23 HPT tempo run

After two weeks of no tempo, we are back! 
 
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.
 
This week we will begin the tempo section under the 14th street Bridge on the west side of Hains Point, running 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 22 Minutes tempo, which should get us from the 14th street bridge 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. Also, Chipotle sent out BOGO coupons, so I think it would be a good ideal to do a post workout meal there.
 
 
see ya tonight.
 

June 16 HPT hill workout

It's that time of the month again, time for hill repeats.
 
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 keep it to 5 repeats, and a 1 mile cooldown, for a total of 8 miles. 
 
Post run food at chipotle. 
 
See ya there.
