A Repeating Cycle (of running)

I'm due for my yearly physical very soon. I'm actually looking forward to it this time around because I've been incredibly fatigued this year. I'd like blame it on my (lack of a) thyroid (condition) but I think it's the fact that I've been running non stop pretty much for going on 2 years.

I was nerding on my past racing schedule (since I started keeping track of it) and I found that it's been pretty steady since the summer of 2011.

I tried listing the ones I have a record of (finisher's bling, bib, diary (yes, diary), etc), butbthere are some 5k/10ks in there that I'm sure I missed.  On top of everything else, I've been pretty lucky to have avoided major injuries.

Within the last month, I've rested more than ever. Trust me, taking it easy for a month is big for me, but now it's time to start back up. The racing calendar looks pretty full starting in a couple of weeks. I've got either a 30k or 60k starting this month until August...and then the fun begins: CR 100, Bandera, and it doesn't slow down for a while.
