~ The unlikely saga of a middle-aged mom of twin second-graders and an Athena triathlete ~
Hey Nancy...A person doesn't necessarily need to train HARD to benefit from rest/recovery. Anything you do that elevates your HR for a sustained amount of time is working your body in a way that it will require rest to strengthen and be ready to tackle that workout the next time. Your body is always looking forward to the next workout and learning from the last one. Yes, you can train HARD, but you should worry more about training smart, and training well.
Point taken! I'm working on the "do some nearly every day" approach right now, myself.
