comment Running in strong wind
Cross wind is much the same as headwind - but harder. You need the quick steps so that when a gust hits you are more likely to have contact with the ground - or will do very soon. If you're running with others then you can do the same headwind truck.

comment What should I be doing to improve the quality of my interval training?
Marathon intervals are typically 1600m in length with a rest of up to 1600m. Put a 1-2km warmup in front and a 1-2km cooldown afterwards and build the total distance up to about 10-12km. You should also think about doing some tempo running. 8-10km at goal pace.
