AM - in Chicago for business.  Went out this morning and attempted to do a workout on the roads - 800's.   Rainy and windy.  Did 6 x 800 with a 400 rest.  As best I could estimate, I hit most of them at 3:02 to 3:06 but not too sure on the last one which got delayed because of an stoplight/intersection.  Pleased with the effort and that I was able to  get a workout in.  Last few weeks have been tough with lots of travel and achy foot issues and a crazy cervical/neck issue.  Hope things start to improve here from this point forward.
