Should I take it easy?

Decisions, decisions...

So, for the past two weeks I've come in under my goal mileage.... 6.1 two weeks ago, and 6.2 last week.  If I choose to take tomorrow off, it'll be the third week in a row: 3.7 off goal distance.

3.7 isn't all that much; physiologically speaking, the difference between 59.3 miles and 63 isn't significant.  But it's pointing to a trend which I'm finding disturbing.

I'm running hard, though, and that's what I can use to justify it.  I'm putting the time in.  I'm putting the effort in.  It's just that I can be a little bit obsessive compulsive, and I want to get my miles in, dammit!  Three weeks of falling short gets to me.  *grumble*
