How many rest days do you take during the week?

  1. How many rest days do you take during the week? 1or 2 rest days....it depends on the intensity of the workouts and the intensity of work. But I may squeeze a mellow walk in on those days, just to... read more

    One or two, depending on how I feel. I'm an old fart :-)

  3. #dailymission - How many rest days in a week? 3 to 4, but, it depends on the week... and I'm likely going to shorten that up as I transition to more riding than running for the summer.

  4. #dailymission Isn't this the day to do cross training?

  5. #dailymission isn't that the 8 hours of sleep I'm supposed to get? Oh wait, it was 6 last night...

  6. #dailymission Rest day? That's usually the day of the week I use to make up a workout I accidentally took off earlier in the week.

  10. #dailymission: Complete rest days??? None if you count in all the running around after my two boys! :) But seriously, if in training only 1 complete re├čt day.

  11. #dailymission That;s a funny one DM. If you take a peek at my training, I am on a runstreak since the year began. No off days there. Easy days are restful though. Does that count?

  12. #dailymission: How many rest days do you take during the week? Normally Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday are rest days. June is a running streek, so there is no rest days. Building base for M7 marathon... read more

  13. #dailymission How many rest days do you take during the week?- From totally working out, 1 to 2. I work out and teach Mon-Fri and try to get a hike or walk in on the weekend.

      I don't like to take more than 1 a week.....even then sometimes I feel like I am cheating myself....which I know is silly but I just know that my moods are better when I get out and do something. I try to use walking as a rest day activity because then I am happy that I have done something but still allowing reasonable recovery :)

      I totally agree. Sometimes my body is tired but I KNOW I feel better after I workout. I guess the key is to not push it harder than you know your body is able, and trying to get rest in while doing something mild.
