I figured that I started structured training the beginning of April and won't end until December 2 (CIM), so I needed a little break to prevent burnout and injury. I know my body well enough that if I don't take some down time in the middle of 8 months of training, I'd blow up mid-Fall and hate marathon training, so hopefully with this break I'll coast right through it with no issues and renewed enthusiasm toward training.
While on vacation, I haven't been totally sedentary, although I've taken more naps in the past week than I have this entire year... I've been running fairly regularly on the one closest county road on mainland. Our cabins are on islands, so whenever I want to run, I have to get someone to drop me off at the marina, then call for a pickup. Not that big of a deal, but still one more thing to plan for when planning a run.
