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.

Tough day today.  Experienced some cramping and developed a side stitch during what was intended to be an easy afternoon run while catching up on last night's election results. 

AM:  1 Mile warm-up followed by 2 Miles at 5:56/mile, a 0.5 Mile recovery jog, 1 Mile at 5:56, a 0.5 Mile recovery jog , 0.5 Mile at 5:56 pace, and 0.5 Mile cool-down.  My plan was to run 2X2.0 Mile Repeats at 5:56/mile, but it just wasn't happening this morning. 

PM:  9 Easy Miles on TM. 

Total:  16 Miles.

9 Miles in 64:30 on a pretty nice afternoon in downtown Little Rock.

I like to think that I can self-motivate through my pure love of running, but since my last race, I've struggled to enjoy a single mile.  And that race was a PR!  I love to train, the discipline that it entails, the goal always in sight, but I cannot always train...particularly since I do not LOVE racing. 

Time to develop my next plan.  It's my only hope.  That and Rocky IV...

2 Miles in street cloths at O'Hare.

That gives me 45 for the week.  

Like I said, time to develop my next plan.
