I take a week off between every phase. I do extra yoga and cardio during that week. If for some reason I take time off in between stages, I'll not take the week off at the end. It's mostly for the mental benefit. :)
I'm going to finish the bonus workout for Stage 1 today. Next the book advises to take a week off. I think I probably don't need to, because I took about a 3 week break in the middle, but I think I'm going to anyway, b/c I'm training for a race, and want to focus on cardio for a bit. This will just be good timing for that. Anyway, did/do you take a week off between stages?
