XLV early Put rolldown

Given that the market could hit another air pocket at any time I’m taking the opportunity to roll these puts down for another week.
Bought to close XLV Feb 04 2022 134.5 Puts at $1.97. Sold on a rollout last Friday at $6.58
Made back more on this trade than I lost on the Roll last week.
Sold to Open XLV Feb 11 2022 134.0 Puts at $2.09.
XLV has rallied to 132.70 and I still have XLV 131.0 Puts that I hope to let expire.
