Day off

I'm skipping my easy run today. It's been over a month since I've taken a day off so I figure today is as good as any other.

Grasshopper- Days off are important. Don't wait until an injury proves it to you. I normally only run six days a week now. If you feel like you must do something, get on the bike or in the pool.

Man of many previous injuries.

Master Gerardo,

No arguments here. For the most part I agree with you. But I also believe it is all relative to how hard you are working. I started taking a day off every 3rd week during marathon training. These days I'm running 20% to 30% less miles since then. So I feel I'm not working as hard. Anyway I think the odds are in your favor because if I get injured everyone will say he didn't take any days off. But don't worry I have full discretion to take days off when I need to. When my workload becomes more difficult I will probably increase to 1 rest day a week.
