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 mixed Trail Run. The 5K is on a paved course (the Old San Pablo Dam Road), while the 10K veers off onto a dirt trail with rolling small hills. Both courses maintain a fabulous view of the Reservoir and the surrounding landscape, picturesque and beautiful. Be sure to enjoy the views while you battle for your finishing place !!! You have the Lake view, the Meadow view, and some enthusiastic helpers to encourage you all along the way. We just love running and hope you do too!
