I take the weekend for resting, but that usually means no planned workouts. I tend to still go for walks, hikes or leisurely bike rides. I also back off if injuries are starting to bug me, like my knees sometimes do.

I take 2 rest days a week, although an injury as kept me down for 3 weeks now. Usually I play on my rest days, swimming, kayaking, or anything I might get myself into. Although these are exercises they are not my Monday thru Friday norm. I don't track them I just get out and have fun.

I've been running for four years now, and I also Roller skate 2-3 times a week. I know that I should be cross training, which I tell myself Roller Derby accounts for, but what about rest days? I am trying to keep a 10 min of fitness a day streak going, and I feel like rest days are counter productive to THAT, yet I know they are important. Basically, I'm wondering what people on here do on rest days-do you literally do nothing, or do you do light cardio- and how often you take them?

Many thanks!
