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.
Once again, we have combined three of our events to create our Dare Greatly Trail Half Marathon Series: our Hillsborough River Half Marathon on December 9, 2017, our Starkey Wilderness Stomp Half Marathon on March TBA, 2017 and our River-N-Rapids Half Marathon on April TBA, 2017.
Participants who register for this series get preferred/discount pricing, a cool custom series hoodie (at the first event) and a special series finisher's medal when you finish the last event. In addition, you get all the normal amenities (and be eligible for all the normal awards) for each of those events!
We will also be ranking series participants overall and in age groups based on cummulative time. We will have "prizes" (to be determined based on sponsors) for overall winners and first place in each age group at the end of the series.
NO REFUNDS FOR THE SERIES.
TRANSFERS OF THE ENTIRE SERIES ARE AVAILABLE UNTIL September 30, 2017.
