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 BEER & BAGEL OFF-ROAD RACE SERIES is coming back to NW Arkansas on Saturday March 24! This year we will be running our 4(ish)-mile race around the hills and through the woods at Hazel Valley Ranch in Fayetteville. It’s a NEW location, but you can expect the same great race followed by a BLOW OUT party for all to enjoy, with great DJ music, dancing, tailgate games, and photos with Sasquatch! Of course, there will be plenty of bagels and beer. And, a race shirt that is everyone’s favorite – a long-sleeve tech shirt with “I’m a Drinker with a Running Problem” on the back.
The BEER & BAGEL OFF-ROAD RACE SERIES started twenty-three years ago in the Heartland of America, where every fall, thousands of runners, beer drinkers, and bagel enthusiasts gather in Lincoln, Nebraska to enjoy a good run and some good clean fun. Today, the series has spread to multiple states, but every effort is made to keep it local and home-grown.
Registration for Arkansas is open now at www.BEERANDBAGEL.com. Runners can choose from individual or group pricing options. Bring all your friends and come #RunEatParty!
