Rules of Ultrarunning, Rule #5

Don't be a slave to your training program. Running is one aspect of your life that should not control you. It should be a source of joy, and not an obligation. Take a day off now and then and don't feel guilty about it. This may be difficult, but it is important in preventing burnout, avoiding injury, and rebuilding muscle tissue. This also ties into Rule #6: have fun.
