Hi, how are you guys (and girls) doing?
Do you think it’s important to take one day off a week from physical activities – a complete rest day?
I box and run 4X per week, and then on top of that, lift weights about 4X per week.
My schedule looks something like this:
Fri: running, Lifting
I don’t see four running days so I can’t make a real good observation or give you an idea on how to create a full day off.
I will say that there is no rule that you have to take a full day off each week. I would strongly reccommend doing so, but I see fanatics who do 7 workouts a week.
My advice would be to take a Sunday and go for a casual walk instead of a run. Give the joints a break. Aid in overall recovery.
If you just can’t make yourself do that, wait until you hurt yourself and then you’ll have some time to recuperate.
