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.
This will be a USTAF certified course and is a run/walk for ages 5 through 105 and will begin/end at the Jacksonville Little Rock Air Force Base University Center at 8 AM on April 22, 2017. The distance will be 4.1 miles on a relatively flat course. We are looking for serious and fun loving participants. We know the 4.1 miles is a little different but our son Brian was always a little different and he would want it that way.
