Any runners here? I'm an avid runner and I usually don't take too many days off for recovery periods. Some days I can do back to back long (long for me) runs and I tend to use my short 3 mile runs as my so called recovery periods. I know other runners who have to take days off. I'm usually pretty good running 3 to to 5 days straight (depending on my other physical training I do). http://www.runnersworld.com/running-tips/the-uncomfortable-truth-about-recovery Thoughts on recovery periods?
