    Donít miss workouts. Ever.

    edit..
    don't miss key workouts. Ever.
    /edit

    solid advice from Joe Friel.

    -Consistency is the single most important aspect of training.

    -It’s more important than long or intense workouts.

    -You’ll improve faster by working out frequently and regularly rather than by doing hard workouts with lots of days off in between. This comes down to moderation and infrequent attempts to find your limits.

    -Pushing yourself to the edge frequently leads to soreness, illness, injury, burnout, and overtraining. These will cause you to miss workouts and lose fitness.

    -You gain fitness at a much slower rate than you lose it. But, let’s face it, you will miss a workout on occasion due to things you have little or no control over—weather, work, family activities and other responsibilities. When these happen you need to do some workout rescheduling.

    -Try not to miss any of the key workouts on your schedule.

    My approach is try really hard to not miss two consecutive workouts. I'll allow myself to miss one occassionally if work, family, illness, etc gets in the way.

    My thought is that missing one day is not going to kill you, and stressing out that you can never ever miss a workout is counterproductive in the long run, at least for me.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    "#2 mistake: Too many hard days. Not enough easy days.

    Correction: To go hard you must rest before.

    Comments: I’ve found that athletes don’t like to rest. I can give them the hardest possible workout and they will excitedly salivate in anticipation. But schedule an easy day or, heaven forbid, a day off and I’ll have to justify it. All too many make their easy days moderately hard which means they come into the next scheduled hard workout just the slightest bit tired and so it also becomes moderately hard. All training migrates to the middle of the sliding intensity scale. This is the road to poor performance. The closer you get to the race the easier the easy days must be so that the hard days can be truly hard."

    #6 "You’ll improve faster by working out frequently and regularly rather than by doing hard workouts with lots of days off in between"

    so.. what's the optimal balance between work and rest, for me, at this moment?

    thanks.

    You might be correct. I'm sure that your musically trained ear can hear the minor difference between "utes" and "yoots".
