Multiple daily runs/rest (Read 64 times)

    Just went for my first runs since starting again last night and this morning.  I didn't quite make 2 miles both times  - I think I was starting at too quick a pace.  That's besides the point though.

     

    I know rest is an essential part of training.  Would it be a bad idea to run again late this afternoon?

      If you're just starting, I wouldn't run twice/day.

        Hah yea, I was feeling better when starting the thread because I had been sitting for a while.  Once I got up to walk around I suddenly realized how sore I still am.  I'll definitely rest until tomorrow.

          Walking is a good form of recovery.

           

          If I was really tired, I used to crash and burn with a nap for awhile, then get up and do chores or walk or whatever - some form of gentle movement.

           

          And you might consider doing a little less when you're first starting.

           

          Congratulations on starting running.
