I've now started week 8 and managed to complete nearly every week one after the other so far. After week 7 I started to have quite severe aches in my legs so thought it was best for me to give it a weeks rest then try week 8. The first run of Week 8 went really well and when I finished my legs didn't feel like jelly like they usually do. Since that run though i've had a lot of aching again so i've decided to try and listen to my body and rest until I feel ready to take on another run (which should be tonight). This will mean that I've had a 4 day rest in between runs.
Is it normal to need longer rest days in between the longer runs or should I just try and run ignoring the aches and pains?
