How do I schedule X days of rest following my upcoming race?

Category: FAQs

There are 2 ways to get the system to plan a period of rest following your race:

1. When entering your race, there is a ‘Post race rest days’ selection drop-down field. This instructs the TrainAsONE planner to schedule with this value as your desired minimum number of rest days. For example, a setting of 2 guarantees at least 2 days of rest following your race. If TrainAsONE calculates that additional days would be more beneficial for you, it will schedule as such.

2. The slightly more lengthy (though more versatile) approach is to adjust the constraints for the days following your race in the calendar. Please see our FAQ, ‘How do I tell TrainAsONE that I cannot run on a specific day?‘ for further information.
