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.
This is a 10K and 5K Run/Walk for Charity. The race takes you through the streets of Historic Marshall Michigan, running through our historic neighborhoods and parts of downtown. It begins and ends in front of the Marshall Fountain Clinic. All proceeds from the race go to the Clinic to help with dental and health care assistance for citizens in Calhoun County that cannot afford it on their own.
