I would suggest that from 13-16 you get a hotel in or near Washington DC, and see the major sites there. Reston itself is very suburban and has nothing I would describe as a must see. Will you have a rental car? If so there are a number of places worth visiting within an hour or so of Reston.

The Udvar-Hazy National Air & Space Museum (part of the Smithsonian) is right there at Dulles. It closes at 5:30 so you won't be able to see it on your training days. And of course, all that DC has to offer. You can park at the Vienna metro station & take the orange line into the city.

Fairfax City has a nice downtown shopping/dining/entertainment area as well.

If you enjoy the outdoors at all, Great Falls Park is absolutely gorgeous.
