Does it matter if I leave 3 days (gulp)! Between runs?

Due to other stuff happening I haven't been able to get out for my 2nd run of week 5! Will go tomorrow...does it really matter in the big scheme of things?

No, it doesn't. In fact you may even find the break is beneficial xxx

Nope.

I always leave at least 2 and sometimes 3. My 'weeks' were/are often 10-12 days long. :)

An extra rest day or three will not make a scrap of difference. If anything, you will come back feeling fitter and more refreshed for the extra time off. Good luck with your next run and best wishes.

I dont think so...I havent been out since Monday, but I'm desperate now!!!!

I don't think so - I've gone up to 5 days in between runs before now, when life gets hectic. As you say in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter - you're still getting off the couch!

i often have quite a few extra days or only 2 runs in a week and it seems fine! :)

Yep, all is well after 3 days break, ran better than before. Week 5 run 2 complete. Now for run 3. Thanks for all the messages of support, what a great bunch you are!
