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.

6 Miles in 39:47 (6:28) on the one-third mile loop around the neighborhood park.

Beautiful day, so Diana and I also played a little tennis.

9.25 Miles in 67:30 (7:18/mile) on a cold and windy afternoon in Little Rock; slightly shortened my favorite 9.5 Mile Loop that starts on Evergreen to Lookout (where I pick-up the LR Marathon Course Miles 16-21), linking up with the Arkansas River Trail in Riverdale, brutal climb up Overlook, and through the hills of Camack Village back home.

7.25 Miles in 47:22 on TM that is stuck on a 3.0 decline. No excuse not to run descent splits when running "downhill", and the end result was a solid, efficient workout. Splits were as follows: 6:58, 6:53, 6:44, 6:35, 6:22, 6:11, and 6:00 (1.25 Miles).

9.25 Total Miles including two miles of commuting.

AM: Awake anyway so out the door at 3:30 am for 8 easy, recovery miles after my highest mileage week in over a month; 70 minutes through midtown and hillcrest neighborhoods on an overcast morning with rain in the forecast.

PM: Had a few minutes before my kids' soccer games at Pinnacle Mountain State Park, so I decided to run the Base Trail, which is a single track, rocky three-mile loop around the base of the mountain. Well, cruising along enjoying the afternoon, I looked up from the trail for a split second, tripped over a rock, and ate it. Hard. Banged up knees, busted Garmin, and very sore wrist. The only silver lining was that I was able to shake it off and hobble back to the soccer fields for the 3 pm start of my daughter's game.

Total: 11.25 Miles.
