The final Woodlands Runner's Happy Hour is happening this week, which must mean this whole "end of summer" thing is real... But it's still going to be awesomely hot and sweaty so the summer vibes live on!
Remember that Woodlands members drink for free at the happy hour. Non-members have a suggested donation of $10. If you're not a member, consider becoming one!
(huge thanks to Sean for his weekly interval workout photo!)

WPR Interval Training - Mondays at 5:30pm
Whether your training plan is calling for it or you just want to add a little variety to your running, WPR has you covered for your interval training needs down. We meet up at Penn Park every week at 5:30pm at the bike racks south of the western soccer field (if someone has a better way of describing that location then let me know...).
The standard workout is 3-5x 1000m with 400m recovery between sets and the group is very good at explaining that workout to new folks who come out... so come out!
