What are your thoughts about rest weeks? I have been building toward a half and the original training schedule that I was following had rest weeks built in. 3 weeks of building and then an easy week. I have been skipping the rest weeks for the last couple of cylces but wonder if this is smart.
Rest is when you get better, improve, get faster. Honor thy rest!
Yes, sir :) Thanks for the feedback. I kind of knew that but it is hard to seemingly give up "progress"
Took last week as a cutback week as suggested. Mainly I just cut back my long run for the week but this week was a great running week. Even my long run for the week this morning was awesome! The best long run in quite a while.
