Do people actually incorporate rest weeks into their training plans ?
For the last few weeks I have been following a 'proper' training plan and as such feel a lot better and stronger for it. I am really enjoying running this way and just want to run as often as possible.I understand the need to have periods of rest (I currently have 2 rest days a week) but am actually looking to increase my weekly mileage from 35-40 up to 50+. I would be interested to hear how often other people have a 'rest week' in their training plans ? How much do you reduce your weekly mileage by during a rest week ?
