Gather back up at the water fountain on the C&O canal at 30th street.


Back to Iwo Jima via memorial bridge.

Remember, on days like today your pace doesn't really matter, just do the level of effort or heart-rate needed to make it a "hard" run, but don't force your self to hit a specific pace.

We will do 4 x 800 Meter up the custis trail, from the corner of Oak street and Lee Highway, to the Hi 66 overpass.
