July 2 HPT Hill workout

Hey everyone, it's July and today is the first Monday of the month, which means we get to do hills. 
 
Tonight's plan calls for 4 hill repeats, which considering the July heat should be just enough to put us all in a state of delirium. That said, you should probably bring a water bottle with some sort of electrolyte solution in it. 
 
See ya tonight... can't wait.

B.
 
Gathering Points:
Repeats: 8 x Custis Trail from the Air Force Association/RRCA building to the bridge over I-66 (800m)
 

June 26 HPT tempo run

It's here, the day you have been waiting for, the falll 2018 training cycle kickoff. 
 
To celebrate we are going to run a short tempo run, then get tacos at District Taco. Further, while it's going to be fairly warm out this evening, looks like humidity will be relatively low, which means this might actually be a decent night for a tempo run. 
 
Here is the plan:
6:30 start running from Iwo Jima to Jefferson Memorial
6:55 start tempo from Jefferson Memorial to Georgetown
7:30 suff our faces with delicious tacos 
 
See you tonight
 
As a reminder, the schedule for the summer is posted on the HPT section of the site, but since most of you never go there, here it is.
