A little rest from summer months?

Hello

 

During the summer months I don’t plan to enroll in races, my first race after summer period will be Sept 29 (a 10 miler) , i want to give my knees, ankles, etc.; a  break during the hot Texas months. I have run 10 half marathons and 2 marathons + few short races over a year and half period.

 

However, I don’t want to be too much out of shape so  I am currently running 7-10 miles per week.  My weigh is 166 pounds and I am 5’9

 

My question is: do you recommend taking a break from running (meaning not running at all), if so,  for how long?  Or do you recommend i maintain easy weekly runs like 7-10 miles? 

 

Thanks!
