Hi Guys, some advice please. My typical runs are 3 times a week of approx 8 miles each run. I want to increase the distance but suffer from a bit of muscles soreness after a 10 miler being my current LSR. I'm 55 years of age and want to move my typical run from 8 to 10 miles building to 15 miles for my Long slow run.
A friend advises that I should run every day but 1 ( rest day) and eventually the soreness will subside so that i can run 10 + miles without soreness being a regular feature.
My question. Is this normal to overcome soreness to run through it ? Is this what I should do or is it sensible to let the muscles recover as I understand the rest period is when the muscle fibres rebuild and repair.
I'm confused. Any advice appreciated
