Mike's Training Tip of the Week

Take 5!

Do you know that a complete break from running can be very beneficial, and is recommended by many coaches? If you've just recovered from a marathon and are running shorter distances, then this could be a good time for you to rest up.

Try a two or three week break. I personally don't recommend going much longer than four weeks. You can do some light cross training like cycling or swimming, or even just walking, during your rest period.

Try it - you'll come back stronger...
