Very cold this morning for this time of year with a stiff winter wind on the back stretch. I believe the wind chill was 20 degrees and it was about 32 degrees. As a result our splits were slower but the effort is what is important. We didn't do too many since most of us are running the Shamrock Half marathon this weekend. 2:33,2:32,2:32,2:31,2:29,2:29.

Although I really enjoy running tempos and long runs with Greg, I find that I like doing intervals alone most of the time. For whatever reason I feel like I have more control with the amount of recovery time I'm getting, the intensity I'm going, and the volume of the overall workout. After recovery from Shamrock I may venture out to the hills again in place of a track V02 day.
