Then do less. You are the one responsible for fitting any training to yourself.
What I meant by rest days was the easy running days in between. This schedule and way of thinking seems unreasonable to me…….
Monday : hard , Tuesday: hard, Wednesday: hard Thursday: hard Friday: hard Sunday: medium I guess.
This seems like recipe for injury.
I thought it should be an easy/hard pattern……
Monday: hard Tuesday: easy, Wednesday: hard….Thursday: easy…etc.
Or maybe I am misunderstanding lydiard here. He mentions easy hard pattern for anaerobic training but why not the hill phase. He mentioned that they were demanding workouts. But hard days back to back for six days!?
