Since when did a 45 minute run count as a rest day?
It is when it’s with a dog that chases everything she sees, aha.
Rest days are called rest days for a reason, and you haven't had one for a while... (1st November?).
I guess I just haven’t needed one yet and I have no signs of OTS or injury right now, so im not going to panic too much about having full rest days. An active recovery twice a week seems to work well anyway.
You won't know you needed one until it's too late...
I promise not to say "I told you so".
