More importantly, today was the day I realized the 54 mile one way trip Boston->Connellsville is possible, if I pick a day which isn't miserably hot. My butt didn't even hurt after the 28 miles, and I could have gone further, but I turned back when I did due to what I correctly anticipated would be encroaching dusk when I got back to the car.
The only gotcha is my right knee, the one which has occasionally acted up since high school, is a little cranky. I'll have to be careful to not overdo it. 108 miles for the week beginning Saturday. If I get in 20 more before Saturday, it's good. 40 is excellent. More, we'll see.
