Personal:

Pride necessarily sprouts and grows; a pride that can only come from relentless kneading of unwilling flesh, painful months of grinding and burning away all that is heavy, all that is strength-sapping and useless to the body as a projectile. --John L. Parker, Jr., runner/author

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. --Theodore Roosevelt

I work as an Attorney in Little Rock, Arkansas.

22 Miles in 2:32:12 (6:55/mile) on the Little Rock/North Little Rock River Trail.  If God designed a perfect day for running, it would look pretty dang close to the low 40s and sunshine that I was graced with this afternoon.  

I ran the first 12 Miles at 6:45/mile, a little fast and aggressive given my target Marathon Pace of 7:15/mile. Despite my lack of discipline today, I ran strong and confidently.

6 Miles at 7:03 and 6 Miles at 6:58 on treadmill set to 1.0 incline. 

Today's run included 3X2:00min uphill accelerations at 6:40 and a 4.0 incline at end of Miles 10, 11 and 12 (6min total uphill time).  

Good, tough treadmill workout.

AM:  4 Miles Easy with light snow coming down in Hot Springs (we decided it would be more fun to get snowed in at Grandpapa and Grandmama's house); included 8 striders along the way at each half mile. 

PM:  So I couldn't resist...20 minute trudge through 8 inches of snow on trails on my parents' land; approximately 2 Miles; followed by 20-30 minute hike back to the house.

So...my parents have a some beautiful land, with beautiful trails and foliage, but with 8 inches of snow on the ground, and a sheet of ice on the old Arkansas highway near their house, the interval/speed workout I had planned for the day was out of the question...unless, of course, you remembered to borrow your Grandfather's 4-Wheel Drive and make your way into town to the only gym that's open.  And my crazy, dedicated Dad joined me.  He's on track to run a BQ time on March 6 as well. 

Today's treadmill run included the following: 

2 Miles at 7:13;

4X1 Mile Repeats at 6:18/repeat;

2X800m Repeats at 3:00/repeat; and

1.5 Miles at 6:58

Including the quarter-mile easy jog after each of the 6 Repeats, I ran 10 Miles total. 

Threw in some bi/tri work and abs for good measure.

Looking forward to a relaxing evening around the fire with the family this evening.

6 Miles comfortably below my target Marathon Pace (7:15/mile); no Garmin, which has been cranky during my last couple of runs, but my Dad has painted mile markers on the old Arkansas Highway near his home (actually, pretty cool...with the exception of his speed work, he trains off distance rather than time, so the big blue numbers on both sides of the highway are actually a pretty handy, visual training tool).
