You don't have to worry about this "new runner" running too much world! I will have no problem with the "rest days" in my training plan and my body will definitely need to recover between runs. Considering I could barely walk after running 3.2 miles on Sunday, I will have no problem resting. I might actually be a little too good at resting (I've gotten into a habit of resting between races!). Actually I am hoping that my knee heals quickly and I can get on with this running.
