I’m following the Hal Higdon Half Marathon guide for Novices (not sure why exactly I’m following the novice plan AGAIN ) which basically has you doing some sort of workout 6 days a week. And that is pretty hard for me. I am a 5-day a week worker outer. Nothing more, nothing less. If I do less, I start to feel sluggish and blobby but when I try to do 6, I feel overwhelmed and tired. 5 seems to be the magic number for me. The problem is that I feel like since I’m skipping something each week, although it’s not usually a run, I won’t be ready for the race. It’s not that exactly, though, it’s more like I feel like I’ve failed. I know that working out 5 days a week is fine, hell it’s better than fine, but there is always this persistent nagging thought that I should be doing 6.
How many days a week do you typically work out? I know at least a few people read this! Comment, please. I’ll comment on your blog back, pinky swear!
