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 School House Run is a benefit run for the Nyakagando Primary School in Uganda, Africa. The Nyakagando Primary School does not have any water source and the closest source is not always clean. This run is to help provide funds for a deep-water well that will provide clean water for the school and surrounding community. Thank you for you participation and help.
