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.
Join us for a great community event! The FCS Key Club Bunny Hop 5K will start at the Falconer track and then proceed along roadways and paved paths through the Village before returning to the track. In the meantime, the kids will enjoy games and run the 1K race on the track. All proceeds will benefit the FCS Key Club, and support their upcoming service trip to the Dominican Republic.
