Ok so you know the whole debate about whether or not rest days are necessary?  I was never really sure what to believe because when I was in organized sports I was always on like 3 teams playing 2 sports at a time and rest days just didn’t happen.  When I started working out again I thought why not just go back to every day because that’s all I knew.  About a month into it I just stopped seeing progress, especially with my running.  So now I’ve been off for about a week and a half because I’ve been soooo busy.  Today I went back to working out.  Before I rested I couldn’t match my mile time anymore much less beat it but today I matched it and I felt like I could have kept going.  Today was the best workout I’ve had in quite some time so in my opinion there is definitely something to be said for rest days!
