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.
BIG MAC SHORELINE FALL SCENIC BIKE TOUR AND RIDE ACROSS THE MACKINAC BRIDGE
Bicycle enthusiasts will once again be filling the area mid September for a chance to pedal the area’s scenic routes and infamous Mackinac Bridge during Mackinaw City’s Annual Fall Shoreline Scenic Bike Tour. Riders from across the Midwest assemble at the Mackinaw City Trailhead Pavilion early on Saturday morning and will have the opportunity to choose between several different scenic routes, both inland and along the lakeshore.
All routes will be clearly marked by color-coordinated signs to prevent riders from going astray and Big Mac safety wagons, distinguished by flashing lights and magnetic signs, will be patrolling designated areas in case of any cycling mishaps.
On Sunday, riders over the age of 13 will have the opportunity of a lifetime as they are allowed to pedal across the Mackinac Bridge and take in the picturesque surroundings of the Straits of Mackinac.
