On the road for work in Henderson, KY. Found a gem of a bike path... that doesn't allow bikes! KY hills and curves abound. Part of it was along the Ohio river so nice scenery. Ran the classic. 10 Mile warm and then intervals. 6x3 min with 2 min active recoveries. Despite the hills I hit pace (Sub10k) all 6 intervals.
