    don't take the day off, just 3 easy miles with a lot of ice and more sleep.

    Listen to your body. Take a day off if you feel that it's bothering you that bad. If you don't listen, eventually your body will tell you one way or the other with injuries or fatigue, which you seem to be experiencing. Icing is always a good suggestion, even when you're not hurting.

    3 1/2 months with no rest days?!
    Take a day off! You most likely need a break. Your body is going to start shutting down on itself probably if you don't give it a break for a day or two. And don't feel bad about taking rest days. They only help you.

    that's great! congrats on the PR.
    as you can see now, just like what Hurdle-girl said, taking a rest day or two helped out in your race.
    Very Happy
