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.
Please participate in our first ever “BARK Buddies Bonanza Day” at Fort Mott State Park on October 13, 2018. The 5k run, 1 mile fun walk/run/ mutt strut, pet contest and family friendly activities are expected to raise enough money to fund and sustain the BARK Buddy program for another year while increasing our availability to more individuals. Your participation and generous donation will cover the expenses of the day and allow us to apply all funds raised to the BARK Buddies Canine Therapy Program.
