About my rest time
I decided to take a rest so from 23/07/2016 to 04/08/2016 I had rest and I didn’t have any trainings except 2 SUP trips during that period of time. On Tuesday (26/07) I had a SUP trip (The inflatable paddle board didn’t work properly). On Wednesday (27/07) I had a SUP trip for the second night of 2016 Vancouver fireworks.

About individual runs
On Friday (05/08): Pain in my left knee after 7km , very intense at the end of 8 km. possible reason is dropping weight and weaker muscles or running too fast after two weeks off.
On Sunday (07/08): I had backache in a way that I couldn’t have a steady 4:58 run. I also had pain in the lower right side of my stomach (the very low part) that I decided to stop running at 8K , but later I decided to slow down the pace and complete the 16K run which worked. The other issue is about the pain in my knee last time. I wasn’t sure if it’s because of dropping weight or because of running fast, while I didn’t have any knee issue this time it’s likely that it was just because of inadjusted running pace. It’s good to have it for my records as a possible cause of knee injury.
