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.
The Mermaid Club is proud to announce their Fourth Annual International Mermaid Day! Yeah Mermaids are so damn cool and badass that we deserve our own special day. Coz why not?!
What is the International Mermaid Day Virtual 5k Run, Swim or Bike?
As Mermaids, we all put in a lot of distance running or swimming or cycling preparing for that epic event so why not use some of your training yards, meters or miles and earn an awesome Mermaid Club Medal to add to that collection of yours. As Mermaids, not only should be celebrate the event, we should also be celebrating the training days – each day that we train is a reminder that we are on a journey to something great and that we are willing to put in the time and effort to make the impossible possible.
This virtual 5k run, swim or cycling event can be any distance you wish to obtain and while the International Mermaid Day falls on Saturday, September 16, 2017, you can opt to run, swim or cycle your distance on any date that week, with your choice of location, rain or shine.
