I did start running a few weeks ago and i am new to it. I've been running/jogging for about four or five weeks and i am improving and getting faster with time.
My quiestion is regarding the "training programs and shedules" i download from websites. I am using one training schedule that i find easy to follow and efective. But in that particular training guise it says t run 6 days a week, with saturday being the only rest day.
When i looked at other programs (training guides), they have about three days rests a week, running only four or five days a week.
This is why i am asking here for advice, and what do people think? Is it normal to run six days a week? or it is better for me to leave off two more days of the program guide and run only four days a week?
Personaly i find it hard the six days a week training because of time. I work full time and have a life, and i also do other sports on top of running. Running is not the only sport i do, as i do martial arts, gym work and swimning, and aerobics classes.........................
and anyway, i heard that the muscles need a rest and a change of exercise, so the six days a week run may be too much. I am confused,
Do you think is better to run only four days a week? especially when one is active the other days?
