Tip Of The Day

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.

Some of our community placements include: Book Brigade program (distributing books and talking about the importance of literacy to 2nd graders) Kids in the Kitchen program (teaching kids at the Boys and Girls Club how to cook healthy meals and how literacy plays a role in cooking) Breakfast with Santa program (providing pictures with Santa, gifts, and stockings to all 144 students enrolled in Douglas County HeadStart). Did you know? By age five, the average child from a family with low income recognizes only 9 letters of the alphabet, compared to 22 letters for a child from a middle-class family. (The Hero Effect) Students not reading on grade level by the end of third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school than their peers. (The Hero Effect) In middle-income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13 to 1, in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children.
