The most important thing in improving is consistency

Another plug for consistency, in both training and recovery, as explained by Team USA Minnesota's coach Dennis Barker:
“In general I like to do what’s best for each person every day. I want them to learn about themselves so they can tell the difference between a good hurt and a bad hurt, a good tired and a bad tired. The most important thing in improving is consistency, and you can’t be consistent if you’re injured or mentally stale. You have to keep the enjoyment in it and keep it at a level you can handle and come back each day. Pretty soon you’re putting together back-to-back days, back-to-back weeks, back-to-back months and years. When you see people running well, that’s the main reason. They’re not going out and trying to kill every workout, they’re just going out and doing good solid work over time and they’re staying healthy.
