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.
High school/college track teams, running clubs and community members of all ages who believe in healthy driving & healthy living.
The event is a campaign by the Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation (www.shreyadixit.org) for building a distraction-free driving world.
