    A running workout typically consists of:

    - Warmup (e.g. easy 2k run)
    - Workout itself
    - Cooldown (e.g. easy 2k run)

    The workout itself might look like 8 x 800m laps or "intervals". In interval training, you alternate between "active" intervals (where you work hard) and rest/recovery intervals. Most people define (passive) "rest" as completely stopping (standing still) and (active) recovery as a light jog. e.g.

    8 x 800m, with 2 minutes rest:
    - Run 800m
    - (Rest) Stand still for 2 minutes
    - Run 800m
    - etc.

    8 x 800m, with 2 minutes jog recovery:
    - Run 800m
    - (Recovery) 2 minute light jog
    - Run 800m
    - etc.

    IOW:
    - Cooldown: the final short run after the meat of your workout
    - Rest: standing still (typically between active intervals)
    - Recovery: light jogging (typically between active intervals)

    Some people may use "rest" and "recovery" somewhat interchangeably.

      They aren't different functions, and they neither make your watch do anything different nor force you to behave differently. You can consider them just different labels that can be applied to a workout step, and that label you chose for a given step will be displayed on the watch when it comes to that step.
      The issue with having to repeatedly log in to vBulletin from one forum action to the next seems to have been partially remedied, but problems persist with changes to User Settings not being properly committed upon saving, and with page encoding such that em dashes, en dashes, left and right quotation marks, accented vowels, etc. are not rendered correctly in the browser.

        i heard that "rest" does not count in the final time of the training while "recover" does count. am i right?

          Sigh. Why don't you just try it out, and see for yourself with absolute certainty what happens? It isn't so hard to create a dummy custom workout in Garmin Connect online, transfer it to your watch and then execute it, without actually doing any running.

            Yes, they are just different labels to use as a guide for workouts. Sorry if I didn't make that clear, and sorry if I needlessly explained basic workout stuff that everyone already understands.

            Rest and recovery both count in your final time -- all of the steps are recorded in your activity, unless you pause your watch.

            What you may have heard is that people want rest to not count in the total training time/activity record, but it isn't the case.
