After the rigours of the first week, it is easy to be weighed (and weighted) by the fact of how much repentance we are called to do and so the easy solution is to just take a break. I'd counsel against it, though I need a break too because I am a chanter and we are asked to do a lot during this season. I pray for strength. But the solution is not to simply withdraw. That is what the evil one counsels.
