I posted a 4-parter about drawdown in retirement.  See if you can't find it.  Pixy posted a 20-parter.
It all depends on if you need this money to live on, or if you can leave it in investments and let it grow.

FWIW, below is info on all rolling 5-year returns, for the period 1961 to 1997.  None of the Unemotional Value strategies had any 5-year period that lost money.
