Well years ago I would have said no. I used to think more was better and I would have plenty of time to rest when I was dead !
However nowadays I am more concerned with getting injured and trying to do everything I can to stay as healthy as possible. I am thinking that taking it fairly easy now and again can only help me.
True yesterday’s run was only 18 Kms and I stopped half way for a drink. But today I decided to take it easy. Put my feet up and rest so to speak.
