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 Pickerington Juvenile Diabetes Fundraising Association is a Non-Profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of families affected by Type 1 Diabetes and helping raise awareness for T1D in our community.
Money raised through registrations and donations to the 4th Annual Brevard Circle 5K will benefit the Central Ohio Diabetes Association's Camp Hamwi and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. In addition to these great organizations, we will be using some of the funds raised to provide support to T1D families in our community. We hope to accomplish this by providing resources to newly diagnosed families; creating additional scholarships to diabetes camp; hosting events for T1D Families to get together and connect; provide support and resources to our local schools; and to help increase the community's understanding of this disease.
