Recovery is an important part of your training program.
Having a break and recovering is not the same as missing a workout. Your body recovers, your cells regenerate, your muscles grow and your endurance increases. This is only possible in a recovery phase.
And hell no, if you only have breaks then you won’t achieve your training goals :).
But doing too much can end up in overtraining.
Therefore active recovery is part of a successful training in the approved TriCoreTraining system – your easy triathlon, runners and biking training system.
