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.
As a part of the senior capstone project at Cazenovia College, the 3k/5k group is putting on this charity run in an effort to raise money for the Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital in Syracuse, NY. Our group chose this organization because all money stays local, they use 100% of their donations to make their hospital a better place for these children and they have a pediatric team dedicated to making the lives of these children better. The More Than a Game Foundation is collaborating with our group to put on the charity run. They are a non-profit organization directly correlated with the upstate Golisano children’s hospital. Any donation is helpful and greatly appreciated. Help support a great cause.
