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 27th anniversary of the Frank Kush Youth Foundation Run will take place Saturday, October 13th. For the past 7 years the run has been associated with Tempe Sister Cities (TSC) and the annual Four Peaks Oktoberfest.
