August 5 HPT hill workout

Hey everyone, It's the first of the month, you know what that means? it's hill night. 

The doctor prescribed 6 hill repeats, which should not be enough to make your legs fall off, but still enough to really wear you out. 
Since it's August, I will remind you that it might be wise to bring a water bottle with a little Gatorade that you can leave at the bottom of the hill.
See you all tonight. 

Gathering Points:


July 29 HPT Tempo Run

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are ready for some more slightly but not overly miserable heat and humidity for tempo this evening. 
For those of you who came to the track meet, Elle Purrier who got second in our 1500 qualified for the worlds 5K last night at USATF Nationals. In Addition to her, it was cool to watch so many people who came to our meet compete on live network TV. 
The plan for tonight is 26 Minutes worth of tempo. We will again be starting at the golf course gate and running clockwise all the way around Hains Point. 
Next week we get to do hills, then we will be back on schedule. 

July 22 HPT Tempo Run

Hey everyone, I am not sure what I did with the calendar, but the date for the hills is in the wrong spot. Tonight will actually be 24 Minutes worth of tempo, which means we are going all the way around Hains Point. While that may sound miserable, it won't be nearly as bad as it's been for the last few days. So rejoice at the fact that we are going to have a week of good running weather.
