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.

7 Miles on a overcast Father's Day morning; ran 1.25 Miles to Scott Field track, and starting at Mile 2, ran a "dig" up the grass/dirt beside bleachers every quarter mile for 10 total digs; took a long loop home to wrap up the workout.

9.25 Miles in 1:10:44 (7:39/mile) on a warm and humid morning.  This is the earliest I've run in months, and it took me 5 or 6 miles just to get loose.  I actually ran Miles 6 and 7, climbing along Miles 15 and 16 of the Little Rock Marathon course, pretty strong.

8.5 Miles in 58:00 on a hot afternoon near 90 degrees in Little Rock; ran 1.25 Miles from my house to the Scott Field Track, another quarter mile to finish a good warm-up, and then, after removing my shoes and socks, ran 4X1 Mile Repeats at 5:24, 535, 5:43, and 5:55 with half-mile recovery jogs on the infield grass of the track; slow cool-down on the return home to round out the workout.

2 Miles of commuting between car and office earlier in the day for 10.5 Total Miles today.

9.25 Miles in 62:27 on TM.  After warming up with a 7:13 Mile, I ran a 7-Mile Progressive from slow MP to my personal best HMP: 6:58, 6:49, 6:45, 6:40, 6:31, 6:22, and 6:11; after a quarter mile recovery and bio break, I ran last mile at 6:58.

10.25 Total Miles including one-mile commute.  

Back-to-back quality workouts during a low mileage week designed to give my body (and mind) some rest while remaining sharp.

13 Miles on a hot first official day of summer in the Natural State. Ran first 6 Miles right at 7:00/mile along the infield of the Magnet Cove High School track; Miles 7 - 9 at 7:40/mile; Miles 10 - 13 untimed and barefoot.

Mixed in 8 fast(er) quarters at 6:00 pace during the workout. These made me tired and thirsty.
