Thank you all for your very good advice, Mace that is a great quote that I need to bear in mind now and in the future.
I'm sure as keen runners you'll empathise with me when I say this, but the thought of 2 days of no running at all is a little unnerving to me. I may do as Stutyr suggests and take it easy, but just go for a light jog on Saturday around my local park.
Thank you for the well wishes, I'm nervous which is strange as I'm only trying to beat myself!
I have spent the last 8 weeks training for a 10k race in the attempt of beating my PB, the race is on Sunday and I'm wondering how much, if any, running I should do between now and then. I have trained every day this week finishing this morning with a 6 mile run 2mins over my target time.
Your thoughts and advice would be much appreciated.
I'm wondering how many days people rest on a typical week of training?
Personally I'm running 6 miles on 4 mornings a week, 3 of the days being back to back and one day I'm running 8-10 miles at the weekend. I'm starting to feel tired and my muscles ache before I've even set off, I'm thinking I maybe need to take a week off to fully rest, which I really don't want to do, or incorporate more rest days.
