I graduated from C25K a few weeks back and have started the Bridge to 10k podcasts as I've signed up with friends to do a 10k Race for Life mid July. Having worked out a training plan in order to finish the podcasts in time to do the 10k it means that I don't always get rest days in-between the runs in order to fit them all in.
Is this OK now I'm a bit less of a beginner? I know Laura always said to take a rest day in-between runs (oh how I miss Laura! All I get from this guy is 'Run!' & Walk!') but I'm wondering if that's just because my body would have been a bit less used to running before I graduated? I do find running easier now than I used to and have become a bit addicted but still struggle on the occasional run.
I'm mainly asking because I had a run planned for today after doing one yesterday but my leg muscles are still feeling a bit achy from yesterdays run. Is it OK to run on achy muscles once in a while?
Thanks for any answers, I never wrote any blogs or posts in this community but reading everyone else's really helped me the whole way through the C25K
