Keep running or take a break (Read 134 times)


    I have 200 miles of pre-track off season training (starting in december of last year), ~300 miles of running in track, ~300 miles of pre-xc training, and ~300 miles in xc, and I did taper in this time frame.


    Should I keep running or take about a 1 month break?  My only fear is getting a stress fracture or some kind of injury like that, but at the same time, I'm really in shape, and I could take advantage of that and get significantly better for the track.

      I would take a week off and then run easy for 3 weeks.
