Active Recovery vs Rest Days: Which is Better for Runners?

Take rest days if you want to, but they're not mandatory for successful training or injury prevention. That said, you shouldn't continue to push your body day after day. When your running back-to-back, you need to be smart about it by adjusting your intensity. If you are training more than 3 days per week, some days should be easy, sometimes you should go slowly.
