I learned the importance of rest days by overdoing it in week 3. Don’t want to do that again. As I move on I’m erring on the side of caution and taking 2 days off if I feel any twinges (I’ve got an arthritic knee so need to be careful). I’m now on week 5, about the do run 2.
So my question is, are there any downsides to taking 2 or even 3 days between runs on a regular basis? My priority is to avoid damaging myself while continuing to progress.
