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.
In honor of National Recovery Month, Aid in Recovery invites you to celebrate sobriety. Join friends and family at our 2nd Annual Run for Recovery. This 5K Fun Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk will take place along the trails of the beautiful John Prince Memorial Park, overlooking Lake Osbourne, in Lake Worth, FL. Aside from the beautiful scenery of the 3.1 mile race, you will have fans cheering you on as you accomplish your goal. The race is open to ALL, walk, run, or skip to the finish line! The certified course will include water stations along the way. Post-Race festivities include music, food, refreshments, inflatable obstacle course, water slide, and awards! The event is Saturday, September 16, 2017. Last year we had 150 participants and we expect this year to bigger! Come join us a sunny South Florida day to celebrate sobriety, recovery, and the wonderful feeling of sober living! 100% of proceeds will benefit Rebel Recovery to provide Peer Recovery Support Services in Palm Beach County.
