For the past couple of years I've prayed at least five decades of the rosary a day pretty regularly (when Sadie was born I took some months off doing it daily... but then again all those days seem to blend together into one big seven month long day without sleep... I digress, back to the original question....).
I usually add five or ten (or fifteen when I'm really feeling motivated) decades during Lent and that is usually when this question would pop into my mind.
When praying ten or fifteen or twenty decades would you A) stop and start over between every five decades, re-reciting the Apostle's Creed and the Salve Regina and all the other prayers at the beginning and the end or would you B) pray the beginning and go around and around until you'd completed the mysteries and then pray the closing prayers?
Instinctually I guess I lean towards B because the starting and stopping (even though it's just a momentary pause) is almost jarring and it kind of breaks my focus and momentum.
But every time I read anything about praying the rosary it usually gives the simple starting and stopping after each set of five decades. So... what do you do personally? If you are praying more than five decades of the rosary do you do the closing prayers and start over, or do you opt for option "B"?
I don't know why this question keeps coming up in my head, but it's something I've been curious about for a while!
