Hey guy's and girls.
I was hoping to get some feed back from you all as regards to training.
I have recently started "properly" training for the Brathay Windermere marathon 2011 that I have just signed up for and along with the new found enthusiasm - that the wife would argue was always there "are you going running again?" I hear a lot from her, I am questioning the 'REST' days on my training schedule.
1) Do you have to take them?
2) Is it ok to run 6 or even 7 days a week?
I understand the need for muscles, bones and joints to recover, repair and rest, but if you feel like running is it ok to?
Obviously, the rest days are normally welcome, but I am just wondering for the odd day that I would rather run, than chill out. If this has any bearing on the question, I am about 17 stone in weight and 6 ft 3" and been running for about 7-8 months, current weight loss since January 2010 is 46 KG.
Cheers for the advice,
