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.
Yuba State Park hosts the fourth annual Run with a Dog 5k. Participants and their furry friends can run or walk along the 3.1-mile course through the park, starting and ending in the Oasis Campground. Well behaved and currently vaccinated dogs are allowed, but must be leashed (and muzzled if necessary).
Entrance fees are $25 or $30 with included short sleeve t shirt. After the race enjoy refreshments, awards, and doggy treats for your K-9 companions.
If you don't have a dog that is okay you can come and participate anyways.
