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.
Come join Montana State University's chapter of Engineers Without Borders and run or walk your way to the finish line in this 5k race! All money raised goes towards projects that are being implemented in Khwisero, Kenya to provide clean water and sanitation to school children. The course follows Pete's hill, and parking will be available at Burke and Lindley park. The start/finish line is right next to the Burke park parking lot across the small bridge.
