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

Good run on a beautiful day.

4 Miles in 26:20 on a beautiful afternoon at Pinnacle Mountain State Park before my kids back-to-back soccer games.

Played a set of tennis and walked a half-mile with my wife, Diana, and baby boy, Evan.

Great day full of fun activities.

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).

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.

3 Miles stubbornly around the one-third mile loop that circles the neighborhood park behind my house. Every step was challenging.

16 Miles in 2 hours on TM.

The movie, "300", was on TNT, and while it's no "Troy", there are worse ways to pass the time than watching the Spartans out man-love the Persians. Great endurance those Spartans.

There are only 3 functioning TVs in my gym, and they are set on TNT, ESPNU, and CNN, respectively. It is a Company gym, so maybe one day I'll have enough pull to pick the channels...or get the master remote.
