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 annual Three Eagle Half Marathon & 5K takes place on the pristine Three Eagle Trail, a 13.1-mile crushed limestone trail connecting the towns of Eagle River and Three Lakes, Wisconsin. The gorgeous trail is only enhanced by the beautiful Wisconsin northwoods and its peak Fall colors. This is a chip-timed, point-to-point race. There will be mile markers at every mile and portable toilets and aid stations available along the route. Funds raised will benefit the Three Eagle Trail and the Three Lakes Track & Field and Cross Country programs.
