I managed to restrain myself and took the full 2 day break between weeks which I think has helped. I think I might actually do this now! I have a few different routes and what I am doing on the longer runs is altering path of my warm up walk so that I start running earlier in the route but always finish about the same place so my mind is tricked into thinking I am not running any further than earlier weeks. It works for my feeble mind anyway!
