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.
South River High School will host our very first Frostbite 5K on Saturday, March 17, 2018 on the school campus. This is an exciting opportunity to support students in our community and students abroad.
The race will be a student-lead event benefiting Sneakers for Senegal and South River’s Prom Breakfast.
Sneakers for Senegal is a direct supporter of Open International, a nonprofit organization that founded a school in Nioro, Senegal. Sneakers for Senegal’s mission is to provide shoes for Senegalese students. These students walk over 5 miles to school every day, either barefoot or with duct tape wrapped around their feet.
South River’s Prom Breakfast provides students with a safe alternative to after prom activities. The Prom Breakfast is held at the school and is staffed by South River administration, teachers and parent volunteers.
Please join us for this special event and bring family and friends too!
