Training on Weekdays vs. Weekends

BEFORE:

For weekend practice, it's best to do shorter distance, faster-paced training on Saturday and longer distance training at a comfortable pace on Sunday.  This is because your body does not become as fatigued with fast paced training, and in a fresh state it's easier to ensure high-quality training and gradually increase your pace.

On the other hand, if you train comfortably on Sundays, even if fatigue remains in your legs, you will hardly feel the effects. If you do longer, leisurely training, it's possible to build up the stamina over longer distances and thereby ensure the quality of the training.

If you reverse this order and do a long run at a comfortable pace on Saturday, you will be fatigued from this run on Sunday. It will be more difficult to increase your pace smoothly and your cardiorespiratory burden can become difficult.  Additionally, the burden on the body also increases when training is carried out across two days consecutively.  Before and after training, don't forget to care for your body with stretching and massages.

AFTER:

For weekend practice, it's best to do shorter distance, faster-paced training on Saturday and longer distance training at a comfortable pace on Sunday. This is because your body does not tire with fast paced training. If you are refreshed, you'll be able to train like a pro and gradually increase your workout pace. 

On the other hand, if you train comfortably on a Sunday, there may be some fatigue in your legs, but you will hardly feel the effects. If you partake in somewhat of a longer, leisurely training, you can build up your stamina over longer distances. This will ensure the pure quality of your training. 

However, if you reverse this order and do a longer run at a comfortable pace on Saturday, you will feel fatigue from your Sunday run. Pushing yourself like this makes it difficult to increase your pace and the burden on your body will increase as training is carried out across two days in a row. Don't forget, take care of your body before and after training by stretching and massaging sore body parts.
