Break

After a day off I did a short easy run this afternoon. My left knee was showing some signs of injury. But to make things worse, my low back started going bad. So it was a good thing to take some time off. My legs felt great this afternoon. I felt very "light", but a little tight. I ran for about 20 minutes and then I did some pick ups of 20 to 40 seconds during the last 15 minutes.

I used to run for months without a day off. But things change as you get old and have a regular job. You have to listen to your body and try  to adapt your training to your daily life.  The main problem is the recovery and intensity of your runs. You have to keep the aerobic phase relatively short and concentrate more in the speed and strength.
