I've been gradually building up for the past 2 months and am now doing 3.5 miles at about 9:30 min pace - 3 times a week. I usually jog each Tues/Thurs & Sun I go to a spinning class on Sat mornings.
My query is - how do i introduce an extra day into my routine e.g. If i felt like doing a jog today (Friday) - shall i just introduce it slowly by doing a 2 mile jog instead of my usual 3.5 or is this asking for injuries?
Any advice welcome.
I'm working to a training programme - but it says to start introducing a day into your normal routine slowly....but not sure what that means....so i'm wondering if i add a fourth day into what i normally do but at a lesser distance e.g. 2miles instead of my usual 3.5.
Ps..i used to make up as i went along and that just set me up with injury after injury....scheduled programme is working great so far (touch wood).
