I've been running for - I don't know exactly - about 10 months and I train about four times per week. I'm 42, slightly overweight, my furthest run has been 11 miles (hilly), I do one session of hill training per week, one easy run, one steady run, and one long run.
I'd like to do more, but I don't want to knack meself, however I did a race on Saturday (last leg of the Cotswold Way Relay; 10 miles and two big hills) and despite the two days rest I've had since then, my legs still feel tired. I should be doing a hill session today, and I'd like to do it, but I'm unsure about my risk of injury.
So, can I ask you guys/gals, what is your attitude towards rest after hard runs/races? Is two days enough, too much, or too little for someone who is probably between a beginer to intermediate level?
