    Hello NaiveApple!

    That's a really good question!

    Usually, the definite article "le" is used when an action is repeated. Here is more information with some examples:

    When the name of the day is not specified by a date, the definite article (le) usually indicates a repeated action each week.

    Ex.: Elle va courir le mardi. Here, «le» means «every».

    Furthermore, in a continuous text, the article « le » is also used before the name of the day when accompanied by a date.

    Ex.: Je suis née le mercredi 11 mars 1987. 

    I hope this information helps you gain a better understanding! Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions!:)
