Training, April 10 through April 16

Easily the least inspired running week I have had in some time. I'm at sea level and in theory could be taking advantage of that to do some less-depressing workouts, but this week I was just tired, increasingly so as the week went on despite running less and less.

The real focus is on my friend and host Arthur's effort at tomorrow's Boston Marathon, not that this should have detracted from my own running. At this point I'll take the fact that I am not injured and still haven't missed a day in 2017.

I may race this week. That is all.

  1. Just go a lot lower on the mileage but preserve that great streak!

  2. Hey Kevin! Bill Rodgers won the Upton 15k Boston Tune Up. So didn't Mr. Beck. Respect. Not bad.
