YAWN……. Quite the boring week. While boring, several things of note:1. Fourteenth week in a row over 70 miles. 1905 for the year. I just don’t seem to be able to stop. Any run less than 6 or 7 miles doesn’t seem worth doing and most of the time I’ll be on an 8 or 9 mile loop and add on. There are worse problems to have….2.
