What incredible information about the drawbacks of 'symmetrical' training... Thanks for bumping!
I agree but I don’t necessarily think you need to constantly be changing the days of the week you have workouts. But a willingness to replace a workout with something easier is often necessary.
Say for instance you workout Tuesday’s, Thursday, and do a long run on Sunday. If the long run on Sunday is very intense or one races that day than it makes sense to skip the Tuesday workout. This enables one to not only recover but continue to increase volume.
Really the key is to increase volume and intensity at the same time. This is easier said than done and requires flexibility to ones approach.
