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.
Maybe you have heard of a Color Run ... but how about participating in a Chalk Walk! This one-mile walk will be the most colorful and fun event you have ever been a part of. As you walk the Village Park route, you will get showered in powdered dye ... turning you into a technicolor canvas of fun! Just when you thought you couldn't possibly be more colorful, you'll cross the finish line and find yourself in the middle of a colorstorm at our race-ending celebration including music and fun. Race begins at 6:00 p.m. in Village Park.
Registration fee includes a walk t-shirt to show off all of the color and individual powder packs for the finale.
