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.
Old Settlers Days is sponsored by the BRIMFIELD AREA MEN’S CLUB.
The Brimfield Area Men’s Club was founded in 1975, as a non-profit organization—for the purpose of contributing to the betterment of the Brimfield Community and area.
The Brimfield Area Men’s Club is able to help the Brimfield area by the generous support and volunteer efforts from those in Brimfield, area communities, and generous support from local businesses. The help from the ladies of the area who assist with Old Settlers and many other fund raisers held throughout the year is invaluable.
The celebration of helping the community we live in through public service is highlighted each year in August with three fun days of family entertainment.
