Thanks for registering me so quickly! A little about myself:
I have been running for 5+ years now. Starting off with a 10K time of about 46 minutes, I've been able to bring that down to 36:50 this past Sunday! I managed this while only running about 30KM - 40KM a week, with peak mileage at 50KM. I do have a history of all sorts of injuries, and I find that if I run more than 50KM a week, I am much more prone to injury.
After finishing up my latest 4 month cycle, I'm currently taking a break from running. I'm off quality sessions, and instead playing some soccer, spinning, rowing, and doing some very easy runs. I am not sure what the optimal amount of time to take off is? I think I'd like to take at least a couple weeks off.
In the summer I generally put running on the back-burner, and instead enjoy hiking. But this year I am considering putting in a 3 or 6 week cycle until June. If not, I will ramp back up in October/November and come back at that point.
I am 31 years old and weigh 57 KG.
Thanks in advance for any guidance!
