Build a Foundation
Add some variety to your exercise routine. Run one day and strength train the next. This will not only hold your interest in the workouts longer, but it will give your body the time it needs for recovery. Additionally, you are covering more muscle groups throughout the body and keeping the workouts motivating and different.
To build up endurance for your 5K race include some interval training as part of your regimen. Use hill sessions and up-tempo to your runs to do this. Hold a steady running pace where you do not feel like you are just about to die, but that you can keep going.
Head to the track for shorter interval runs while learning to pace yourself. Learn to conserve your energy during the first part of the race and then to let go in the second half so you can make it to the finish line of you 5K race.
The FIRST annual Naked Feet 5k takes place on the beautiful sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale Beach.
The 5K course is entirely in the SAND. It is a nice out and back course that turns around at the jetty by Port Everglades. The ocean breeze will be at your side and the open water there for a cooldown after the event. The beauty of this course is that there is no street to cross no tracks to navigate only a leg strengthening sand!! Come enjoy running in a truly natural environment. Place awards are given only to those who complete the distance un "shod". (shoeless)
It is the first event of this kind in our area embracing the road AND trail running elements in ONE event.
