am--7.5 Kidney Loop at a progressive place. I felt good after I got going. The meet went well, also. RHR--53. 

I also finished another book--No Bugles No Drums by Peter Snell and Garth Gilmour. This is an autobiography of the famous NZ 800m and 1500m runner. I was hoping to get some kind of insight into the practices of Arthur Lydiard--it did mention him a bit--but learned more about the tenacity and confidence of Peter Snell. Over and over in the book, he runs time trials and races in the 1:4xs and low 1:5xs and miles under 4:00. He makes it seem so easy. This guy had grit. I mean he was mostly an 800 runner--880 actually--running upwards of 100 miles a week. Here's my favorite quote:

"I treasure a great deal the background I received as a youth in many sports, coupled with the knowledge I have of training in one particular sport and the confidence stemming from success in achieving the very pinnacle therein. I know now that this confidence can be applied to just about any other phase of life. The principles of anything you do are basically the same. It now makes sense to me when someone sets out with the decision that he is going to be, say, a great painter. I know that, if he has required the ability to begin with, he can achieve that ambition. Once you have acquired the knowledge of what a human being can make himself do, it becomes a powerful force in anything you aim to accomplish" (233-234). 

Speaking truth.
