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 proceeds from the Cuddle Walk & 5K, in Memory of Finn Parker Urgo, go to providing a CUDDLE COT for Augusta Health L&D. Total cost: $3,200. The Cuddle Cot aims to give parents of stillborn babies more time to grieve & to make the journey a little easier. This cooling device preserves the baby in a bassinet or crib so that he or she can remain up to five days in the hospital room, giving the family more time with their baby.
