During the summer, part of my schedule looked like this:
* Thu - speed work with group
* Fri - Rest
* Sat - long run with group
On the surface, it looks like a legitimate rest day sandwiched between two run days.
However, Thu speedwork was 7pm on Thu and the long run was 7am on Sat. That means only 36 hours between workouts.
Is that enough to truly count as rest?
Because today I realized that I could achieve the same thing (36 hrs between workouts) without actually taking a day off.
* Mon - weight training 7AM
* Tue - Run 7PM
See? It's got the same 36 hrs break in between workout, no off day.
