    What's your goal?

    - Weight loss
    - Strength training
    - Speed training
    - Endurance training
    - Build Muscle
    - Get Shredded

    Walking is still a great recovery exercise. I'm out of commission nursing an ingrown toenail procedure and I still managed 1 hour of walking at a snail's pace! It's important to rest but it's hard when you enjoy exercising.

    Personally, I feel like my recovery is much better when I walk on my rest days. A good walk seems to really loosen everything back up. A sure fire way for me feel like the tin man after a rain storm is to have a full on “rest” day where I work from my office and then go home and veg out on the sofa.

    Your mileage may vary, but that is just my experience with trail running and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu soreness.
