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 Alameda Running Festival incorporates a half marathon, 10k, 5k, Family Fun Run, & Bike Tour. The event will start and finish in the Alameda Point and highlight several beautiful areas around the island. The event will benefit Alameda Meals on Wheels and the Alameda Education Foundation.
The Alameda Running Festival will create a 2-day festival of events that will include an expo around health and wellness as well as community involvement including local schools, businesses, charities and fundraising.
We are very excited to create this incredible event in and around the island of Alameda.
Come Run the Island!
