So monday is my standard rest day. Once upon a time, this was simply so I wouldn’t have to get up early on Mondays. My thought was that they were bad enough due to the start of the work week – why make it worse with less sleep?
Since I do the majority of my working out now in the evening, this is obviously not a reason. In fact, I have to admit that NOT working out, usually lowers the quality of the day on the Bad————————————-Good scale. The thing is – Mondays remain non-stop running. In fact, the day runs so hard (which is why I don’t) that I have to leave work early in order to get my son up to the Maryland State Boychoir practice in Baltimore! The kids love it, as it becomes a “Junk Food” dinner – as we do takeout from some where.
Do you have a chosen rest day? Is it due to scheduling reasons, or some other factor?
My rest days really just depend on Basketball and on how my knee is feeling that day.
I don’t have a standard rest day because my schedule changes so much…I think of my rest days as either days where I’m not running or not working.
Do you try to work for a certain number of running days a week?
