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 Scottsville Scoot 5k and 1-Mile Fun Run is a great day for families to exercise together in beautiful Scottsville.
The race proceeds will benefit the Scottsville Elementary PTO. All proceeds of this race will benefit Scottsville Elementary School students by funding educational and enrichment opportunities (assemblies, field trips, and classroom projects), community outreach for those in need, and special classroom supplies. The purpose of the event is to promote healthy active living in the Scottsville School and Southern Albemarle communities while raising funds for Scottsville Elementary.
Students have been participating in a running club for 6 weeks in preparation for the 1-mile fun run and are excited to participate in this event with you!
