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 Big Chief Tire One Mile Championships presented by Pajcic & Pajcic are back for its 4th year. The 2014 event saw some amazing fast times with a 4:05.2 men's winner and the fastest women's time was recorded in 2015 with a 4:53.4 mile. The 2016 race was also exciting as the top 5 men were within 5 secs of each other and the women's race saw the first 3 women run faster than 5:03. The 2018 race returns to the Bold City venue with a fast course perfect for setting new records. The race will be run in multiple waves giving runners the options to choose the wave that fits them the best. Any pace, any ability, any age are all welcome as there is a wave for everyone.
