Runner's & Triathlete's Web Athletics: The Hard/Easy Principle (721 words)
The hard day/easy day training pattern follows from the physiological dogma of stimulus and response - hard training provides a stimulus for your body to improve, but rest is then needed to allow your body to recover and adapt to a higher level.
The clear implication is to not do another hard training session until your immune function recovers from the previous hard session or race.
Allowing at least one easy day before the next hard workout provides a minimum of 48 hours of recovery, which is typically enough time for your immune system to return to full strength.
