Jan 7 HPT Hill workout

Hey everyone, I hope you all had an awesome Christmas, New Years, Spaghetti monster (I don't actually know when the Pastafarian holidays are, but I assume around winter solstice) break. 
 
I am sure you are all very happy to know that tonight is hill night, with the workout calling for 4-6 hill repeats. Are ready to have a great first workout of the year?
 

Dec 17 HPT Tempo Run

Hey everyone! 
 
Happy non-rainy tempo Monday, I hope you all had a marvelous weekend filled with large raindrops and sopping wet clothes! I know I did. 
 
Speaking of rainy and muddy things, congrats to Christie for winning the Gar Williams mud fest (photo courtesy of Arielle).
 
Tonight's tempo is 15 minutes, which means it's the last of the short tempos. Next week we move to 18 minutes and the Ohio drive cutoff. 
 

Dec 10 HPT Tempo Run

Hey Everyone, I have posted the spring schedule for the HPT group on the site and will paste it below. As always the spring cycle targets Boston, because of this the hill workouts are a little longer and loaded closer to the race. 

 
As for tonight, as the schedule notes, we are doing 12-15 minutes, which means it's still the shortest tempo route.
