Well, it's definitely been a rough 10 days for me. But at the very least, I can feel proud to know when I need to take a break. 2 years ago, I ran 3 marathons in 14 days, when i should have run none, and i paid the ultimate price with chronic knee problems that continue to plague me today. I'm sure those runs also played a role in the eventual collapse of my right calcaneofibular ankle ligament. Oh well, 7.8k over 10 days looks funny in the training log, but it is a necessity at this point. I can only hope that I will feel better next week. But this is a good sign that I am starting to figure out my limits, and learn when I have to take a break!
