I am currently working on the sub 50 minute 10k program with a few modifications to allow for more days rest. I'm aiming for about 5 days of running per week rather than 6 days. Days that I'm resting are going to be days which would normally be easy 30 min runs so that I don't miss out on more of the harder sessions.
On day 5 I managed my longest run so far which was 17.74k (11 miles) in 1hr 45mins. A pretty comfortable pace but my legs were finished after it! I also completed days 6,7 and 8 but after the 8th day my legs needed a rest so took day 9 off. On day 12 I set a new PR for 5k - 23:56
What do you think of my plan for days off? Make sense?
