Garmin Coach Greg - too frequent runs

I'm doing the 5k plan with Greg. Time goal with a race date. 

There are 4 runs a week, every week. Which is 8 runs in 14 days, meaning there are no recovery days between runs 

I cannot seem to alter the number of days / week of running, and it's a pain in the *** to have to reschedule runs to fit a "normal" recovery schedule 

To make matters more comical , my connect app just posted an article on the importance of rest between runs. 

Is there something obvious i can do to either have the app understand that 8 runs in 14 doesn't allow a rest day, or change the frequency of Greg's runs. (Software that sets a run wveryb2 days is the obvious solution, but if it could then it would already, surely.)

  • When you first set up a plan in Garmin Coach, you are usually given a choice of how many run sessions you want per week. As I remember it, the choice options depends a bit on which coach you have chosen. Which choice options were you given with Greg?

    Anyway, 4 runs per week is a quite low number. It gives you 3 rest days per week. You say that the plan doesn't give you any rest days.

    You also talk about recovery days. But usually in running, "recovery" means an easy run, not rest.
