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.

Half-mile warm-up followed by 8 Miles in 51:27 (6:26/mile) on a warm, humid afternoon around 70 degrees on Hwy. 171 between Malvern and Hot Springs, Arkansas.  Half-mile cool-down back up the driveway to my parents' house.   

I would have preferred to take today off, but tomorrow morning, I am having a septoplasty and right inferior turbinectomy (deviated septum), so probably no running until Wednesday at the earliest.  Good thing I started tapering this week!

2 Easy Miles in 15:00 to warm-up, followed by 4-Mile Tempo run in 25:00 (6:15/mile) on the treadmill set to 1.0 incline; short water break and 2 Easy Miles to cool down. 

8 Total Miles two days after surgery to fix my deviated septum.  Snout still pretty sore, and weight was down almost 5 pounds after reduced appetite the last couple of days.  Frankly, I didn't have a lot of energy or "pep" today, but it was to be expected, I guess. 

Mostly easy stuff the rest of the week with the possible exception of a few intervals at 5K pace and a medium-long run on Saturday, during which I hope to pop off a few miles at target MP.

1 Easy Mile to warm-up followed by 1 Mile at Easy MP (6:58) and 4X1.0 Mile Repeats at 5:49/repeat with a half-mile of jogging to recovery after each repeat; 2 minute bio break gave me a little extra rest after second repeat, and with the except of the final half-mile of the fourth repeat, I ran pretty strong and comfortably.

13 Miles in 1:24:59 (6:32/mile) on a cool morning of 45 degrees in my neighborhood.  

Legs a little heavy again today, but overall, pretty good effort for final medium-long run heading into a race week.   

The rest of this day will be focused on fun and family, with a second, larger birthday celebration for my daughter, Sophie, and some hog callin' later this evening when the Razorbacks welcome the Tennessee Volunteers to town for Homecoming.
