New to all this so just wondering about the rest days? I'm fairly active anyway and don't want to give up on other activities. Equally I don't want to fall behind on program, which means currently I'm running 3 times a week as it says. But am also swimming once a week and doing an hour long yoga class once a week. So only really getting 2 true rest days. Also walk with dog every day for anywhere between 40 mins and 2 hrs depending on weather/work etc.
So far, I feel ok other than general achy legs after runs. New shoes seem to have sorted out the other problems. Do the rest days have to be complete rest days, or just rest from running? Wondering if it should be ok to continue running 3 times a week or if I should be cutting back??!?
