Rest days are an imporant part of training. Taking a day off can actually benefit your runs.
We hope you guys are having a great start to the running challenge! Today is day four and brand ambassador, Laquane, is talking about the importance of rest days.
A lot of times, we want to push ourselves and run every day. Turns out, that is not such a great idea. Incorporating rest days and slowing increasing miles can help your body recover and prevent injuries.
Running Schedule: Days 4 – 6
Day 4: Rest/recovery
Day 5: Cross train
Day 6: 3-5 mile run (long run)
