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 Andrew Schmeer Foundation honors the memory of Andrew Schmeer who was tragically killed on September 8, 2014 in a car accident. Funds raised in this 5K will help to recognize well-rounded students along the Treasure Coast each year by providing college scholarships for those in need. We are also raising funds for donations for children in Hospice and "Dogs and Cats Forever" Pet Rescue.
