Sometimes only running 3-4 days per week makes me feel a little lazy. I see/hear runners that lace up almost everyday, who only have one rest day per week. I know that what works for some people doesn't work for others and we all run our own pace/race but I can't help but feel that I "should" be doing more. More running, more cross training, more strength training, more resting?
I'm currently in a loose training cycle (meaning, I'm training for a half marathon on May 18th but I don't have a time goal per se) but starting in July I'll be training much more seriously for a handful of fall races. I'm currently looking into different marathon training plans. Do you have any favorites? Any books you would suggest? It's all about creating that perfect balance... :)
Question: What's your happy balance? How many days per week do you run?
