AM - 2 miles on the treadmill - followed by some indoor rowing.  Really cold out this morning - decided not to venture outside.

PM - Tempo effort.  I had thought about doing a 5k race this morning at Piedmont Park - but decided that I did not feel like dealing with single digit wind chill temps - so instead I did a 5k effort on the treadmill this afternoon.  Started conservatively at 6:58 and gradually worked down to 6:30 pace - with the last .1 was 6:15 pace.  Pleased with the HR through much of the workout and how I felt overall.

Even my office building is too cold. People are wearing hats and coats - and one lady has a blanket around her at her desk!
