Switching up the rest days

    Mondays are super heavy for me at work, so it makes the most sense for one of my rest days to be Monday instead of Sunday. I usually hike on Saturdays because of family committments on Sunday mornings. How would you recommend I rearrange the workouts to fit around these two constraints? (I’m on the base plan) I’m nervous to move workouts around since the plan was crafted so carefully!

    Hi Silviana,
    I’d just swap Sunday and Monday workouts, so Sunday is your aerobic or run/walk and Monday is rest.

    Thanks!!
    Do I also need to swap Wednesdays and Thursdays? Wednesday seems to be a rest day during some weeks in my plan and I was wondering whether Mon and Wed are too close together to be the rest days? But then Fridays are rest days too in the recovery weeks, and I get worried that I am messing with everything if I swap the rest days :O
    Thanks in advance!!

    You doing great, the less you move the better ( :
    Just keep it simple and shift Monday and Sunday.
    And on any given week something might come up and you need to move a workout, I do it all the time. That is fine.
    Training happens over a very long period so moving a day here and there won’t have a massive impact.
