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.
Goliathon is a unique 4-mile, Ninja Warrior style obstacle course created to help those in need around the world. It's a non-profit organization with a management team and staff that are 100% volunteer. All proceeds go directly to clean water projects in developing countries. In order to encourage a wide range of participants to unite with us in our efforts to help those in need, we created the first obstacle course with tiered obstacles ranging from moderately easy to extreme. Families, friends and teams can run together and choose the level of difficulty on each obstacle that's right for them.
