ColleenE wrote:Rest days are equally as important as days when we run. Even when I'm running 80 miles a week, I have a rest day. Letting the body totally recover for 24 hours does wonders for performance and restores one mentally as well.
Mr. Cleetus wrote:Rest is critical as everyone emphasises above. However, whether or not that needs to be structured to be strictly one day per week, every third day, or some other unscheduled rest, really depends on you, how you are recovering, what your training session are, how you are recovering, stress in your life, how you are recovering, etc. You really need to listen to your body and understand and think about why you are doing the sessions you are doing - and on the flip-side, not just force a recovery day to fit into some schedule. Having said all that, it sounds like from the doc comments above that maybe you need more rest......
What is your goal with your running? Why do you want to run every day?
