      Andy, I'm not sure. Just how long can I use Boston as an excuse? This living in a 70 year old body is all new to me. Truth is, after BolderBoulder, I need to stop pouting and get serious about the PP double.

      Nice but you might think not taking a day off is smart but it is not! I feel the same way sometimes but when I do take a day off or an easy workout the results are always the same, I feel great, today was one of those days.
