Sometimes your body (and mind) need a little time off to recoup and before starting training for a fall marathon was a perfect time for it. To this extent I took ten days with little to no running and then worked my way back into training. I take a relatively cautious approach when starting up a cycle to minimize the chance for soft tissue issues, something that has been problematic for me in the past. The first week of rest started on Monday, May 12th.
