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 Mermaid Club is proud to announce their Fourth Annual International Mermaid Day! Yeah Mermaids are so damn cool and badass that we deserve our own special day. Coz why not?!
What is the International Mermaid Day Virtual 5k Run, Swim or Bike?
As Mermaids, we all put in a lot of distance running or swimming or cycling preparing for that epic event so why not use some of your training yards, meters or miles and earn an awesome Mermaid Club Medal to add to that collection of yours. As Mermaids, not only should be celebrate the event, we should also be celebrating the training days – each day that we train is a reminder that we are on a journey to something great and that we are willing to put in the time and effort to make the impossible possible.
This virtual 5k run, swim or cycling event can be any distance you wish to obtain and while the International Mermaid Day falls on Saturday, September 16, 2017, you can opt to run, swim or cycle your distance on any date that week, with your choice of location, rain or shine.
