An 8 Day Week?

I would like to put my case forward to propose a change. I've decided that a seven day week is just not convenient. An eight day week would suit me much better. The eight day week I propose would be five working days and three days for the weekend. It would mean relocating Public holidays onto one of those weekend days but, because of the global economic crisis, you'll porbably all agree that we can't afford to sacrifice productivity.

The number one reason for this proposed change is that I could fit in four runs a week and still manage a rest day in between each. I've learnt a lot this year and one of the most fundamental training tips that I've learnt is that your training is only as good as your last recovery. Train hard - recover harder. Having so many rest days is working but I'm missing having that fourth run so and eight day week would really suit me.

That's it - my entire argument! I know it's all about ME but, hey, if you don't ask you don't get.

I had another really good run today. It's still way off being fast but it was 12k at 25 degrees and 88% humidity and I felt great at the end.


  1. I say dump all the holidays (except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years) - who needs them now when every weekend is a three day weekend! Where do I sign the petition?

  2. This is an excellent proposal. I'll vote in favor for it!

  3. Thanks for checking out my blog! Count me in for that 8 day week. While we are at, how about 1 day of that weekend is a parents only day??

    Thanks again!
