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

11 miles easy - on very sore quads - on my 9.5 Hwy. 300-Roland Cut-Off loop plus a little extra. It was a sweat fest, close to 90 degrees with humidity at 70%+, and I managed it without any fluid. I also managed 8X200m surges, 2 each at the end of Mike 6, 8, 10, and 11.

AM: 13 miles midday to Pinnacle Mt. State Park. Made a couple loops around Kingfisher Trail and headed back home, with two short detour climbs up the Pinnacle Mt. maintenance Russ (gravel) and Waterview Estates entrance (pavement). Relaxed 8:37/mile pace, still with not-insignificant soreness in quads.

PM: 4 miles at 8:28/mile before Arkansas Track & Field Hall of Fame banquet, during which one of my runners was honored as a member of the All Arkansas Academic Team!

Total: 17 Miles. I'm not sure what I'll have heft tomorrow, but I'm on target for my third 100+ mile week in a row.

20 miles in just over 3 hours (9:02) in Ouachita National Forest. This was quiet an adventure in the pouring rain with flooded FSRs and unplanned reroutes (including a ride from a nice local couple!).

20 miles in 2:52:45 (8:38) from Pinnacle Mt. State Park Pond parking lot to NLR side of Big Dam Bridge and back, along Pinnacle Valley Rd. and the Arkansas River Trail (paved). One bottle of water only despite temp approaching 88 degrees with 60% humidity.

Most positive was my back half split (84 mins), which was 4:45 faster than outbound 10!
