I try and run three times a week. More if time will allow, but life seems to get in the way sometimes. You want to run, but you have family, or got to do a long day work pattern. I last ran on Friday, and am now running tomorrow, i.e. Tuesday. Its a gap i dont like. I try and do alternate days.
Question to people. Do you have the same problem? And should a gap of a few days, in theory, make a difference?
In a perfect world i would be running alternate days, maybe doing a cycle etc. I do, do leg exercies when i cant run though. I stretch, i try and do a fast walk or something.
Like i say though, do many people have the same problem i do?
Hi to everyone
i train before work . usually my session is about 7 k (32-35 mins) . I starded 3 times for w . Now i train 5/6 time a week . I've 2 guys and a child . My wife give me this time . i feel better after my training and i help her for the homeworks.
Everyone's different. Well, thanks for all the advice, and i did do an 8 mile run on Tuesday after a 3-4 day break, and still did it in 57.53, which is about the pace i like to keep. I always approach my runs now, with the attitude of just enjoy them, not look at my Garmin watch much, and see what my body wants to do.
Bottom line. Yes you can have a break of a few days like you all have said. A few days is different to a few weeks, but i am not going to test that theory if i can help it.
i think is a good rule to respect yours limits first and enjoy my running. i often run with my garmin but only to remember my mileage . Maybe i run to keep my stress . What is your opionion about it?
Doing some weight training on one of your 'free' days would be ideal or maybe some sort of yoga/pilates based activity.
Running puts a strain on muscles and ligaments and doing strengthing exercises will help guard against injury.
i cant stop running ive been running 6 out of 7 days for a while now.
i did 4 miles earlier and when i got back my friend rang me and asked if i wanted to go for another run about an 1 1/2 later is it bad for me to run like this?
