Avoid Skipping Recovery
Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.
The 10K, 5K, & Fun Run/Walk events are all part of a three-day multisport festival consisting of a sprint-distance triathlon on Friday afternoon, road bike tour rides and races on Saturday and running races on Sunday.
There is even a Eurekan category competition. Either the Full or Half Eurekan. See event website for full details - http://www.eurekasportsfestival.com/eurekan.htm
