YHC explains how rest and recovery helps improve performance.  EXAMPLE: The IDIDAROD is One of the most extreme endurance competitions. It is basically a dog sled race over 1049 miles of the most extreme Alaskan terrain and weather. The top mushers of the day would accomplish this in 16 days.  Unfortunately the dogs would have a 50% mortality rate within a year of the race. Martin Buser of Switzerland revolutionized the sport by deciding the rest his dogs more than they ran (each day run 11 hours and rest 13).  In doing so he was the first to be able to complete the race in under 9 days and ultimately won the Ididarod 4 times.
Calculated/Perscribed Rest is just as important is our professions and personal lives as it is in our fitness.
