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.

I got up in some good speed work late this afternoon, and despite the 90 degree heat, I felt like it was exactly what I needed to recharge my batteries.  Today's workout included the following:  

3 Miles at 6:35/mile;

4X400m at 79, 76, 79, and 79 seconds respectively;

3X800m at 2:46, 2:55, and 2:56 respectively; and

800m easy jog to cool down.  

Including 200m walk/jog after each quarter, and 400m walk/jog between 800's, I ran 7 total miles.

Ran out of hours today (wish days were longer), so I had to improvise with a 3 Mile tempo/progressive run: 1 Mile at 6:40 (MP), 1 Mile at 6:18, and 1 Mile at 6:00 (5K) on the treadmill set to 1.0 incline.  Felt pretty good.

am:  8 Miles Easy in WLR neighborhood.

pm:  4.5 Miles in WLR neighborhood, and it was an interesting workout; 1 mile at sub-7:00, but I had to back it down for a couple of easy miles after developing a strange, unexplainable side-stitch (hydration issues perhaps?); then I kicked it up to 5K pace for a half-mile (2:55), followed by an easy half mile, another quarter mile at 5K pace (1:27), and a quarter to cool down.   

Total:  12.5 Miles, mostly easy stuff with a couple token repeats.

6.5 Miles this afternoon in Malvern, Arkansas, and it was a little warm (98 degrees!); working from my Dad's office (we work for the same Company), I ran an easy mile to the start line of the Malvern BrickFest 5K, which happens to be next Saturday, and in which my Dad and I may participate depending on how his calf and my right knee feel this week. From this point, of course, I ran most of the BrickFest 5K race course (3 Miles) in just under 20 minutes (approx. 6:37/mile), followed by 2.5 very easy miles in the bright, bright sun.

8 Miles Easy with my Dad on Hwy. 171 between Malvern and Hot Springs, Arkansas.  Out the door by 4:30am because I had to get back to Little Rock to participate in a golf tournament/fundraiser hosted by my church, St. James UMC (8:00am tee time).  

And as if I hadn't logged enough hours in the Arkansas Summer heat, I even found time to mow the yard this afternoon!  My in-laws came over for dinner and a movie, and all in all, it was a very good day, but a long one...off to bed.
