Love this quote by Jack, “rest or recovery is part of training, it’s not avoiding training.” Everyone assumes they must train more to get better but many times more recovery or rest can lead to greater benefits. There’s another side to this as well. We always have clients who try and push their limits when they’re sick or injured because they’re worried about missing training even if it’s just taking a day off or two. Most don’t realize you can take up to 10 days off in a row without losing much fitness. This basic fact could prevent many injuries amongst runners.
