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.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Join us for the Be The Light 5K and Fun Run in Auburn, Alabama as we raise money for East Alabama Mental Health. Mental Illness effects 1 in 5 people, and the money we raise will go towards mental health services for people in Lee County.
