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 11th Annual Lake Jovita 5K Reindeer Run will be held in one of Florida's most beautiful golfing communities. Lake Jovita is an immaculately manicured, gated community with over 1,000 acres of upscale, master-planned neighborhoods that wind their way over emerald hills, through hardwood forests and along sparkling lakes, with some of the most dramatic elevation changes in the Southeast.
There will be music and snacks around the beautiful country club pool at the end of the race. Medals will be awarded for the top winners of each age category.
There will be a raffle after the race, so please bring some cash with you.
Costumes are encouraged! The best costume will win a prize.
