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

Today was positive. On tired legs with a tight window of time, I ran 17 Miles in 2:03:45 on TM; Miles 1-6 at 7:47/mile, 7 and 8 at 7:41/mile, 9-15 at 6:58/mile, and bullishly, Miles 16 and 17 at 6:31 with a really fast sprint finish. And I felt, arguably, better at end of run than beginning!

7 Miles on a beautiful morning, 73 degrees and lower humidity, in Little Rock. Finished with a few striders at park where I met family, and Max knocked out final half-mile with me. I was more excited about this than he was, but he understands exercise is important, and that's a foundation on which we can build.

Busy day. Rare, late afternoon run after Max's soccer practice; from Murray Park soccer fields, I ran 10 Miles along River Trail out west over Two Rivers Bridge and back east as the darkness set in. Managed slow MP, 6:48/mile (67:58 total), thanks in part to the coolish temps in low 60s.

8 Miles in 54:37 (6:50) on a cool and windy morning after coaching Sophia's, then Max's, soccer team to victory in their respective first games of the season. Averaged 6:32/mile for Miles 5-8 back east along River Trail.

10.5 Miles in around 90 minutes on a beautiful afternoon along the River Trail. Diana and Evan, whom I pushed, joined me on this relaxed run, which included a stop for playtime and snacks at Mile 4.  I should clarify that I pushed only Evan...Diana cruised on her bike.

I've felt very fatigued the last couple of days, and I attribute it primarily to reduced sleep, uptick in stressful (or, at least, atypical) activities, and lack of time to take care of my legs and body properly (see reduced sleep + no ice baths + very little lunch = FATIGUE!).

11.5 Miles in 78:40 (6:51 overall pace) on a great morning in Little Rock.

16 Miles in 2:01:56 (7:37) on a beautiful afternoon in West Pulaski County. Starting from Two Rivers Bridge parking lot, I ran over TRB, then west on River Trail, exiting Two Rivers Park onto Pinnacle Valley Drive toward Pinnacle Mountain; entered Pinnacle Mountain State Park at approximately Mile 6, turning right on road to Pinnacle Mountain Visitors' Centet/Scenic Overlook, turning around about a quarter mile down trail near Scenic Overlook; Miles 15 and 16 at sub-7:00 pace.

18 Total Miles including one-mile commute and one-mile walk at park with my youngest son, mother-in-law (visiting from Detroit), and our dogs.

Working off very little sleep, but inspired by the cool temps in mid-50s, I ran 11 Miles in 71:45 this morning.

3-Mile warm-up (7:40) to Scott Field track + 1.25 Miles on track; Mile 4 in approximately 7 mins; 6-Mile Tempo with the following splits -- 6:00, 5:57, 5:50, 5:39, 5:27, and 5:59 (latter .5 through hills back to house); Mile 11 in 6:43.

Felt pretty strong after beginning true taper yesterday.

12 Total Miles including a walk with my daughter, Sophia, who is home sick from school today.
