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.
It’s once again time to lace up your running shoes and break out your mountain bikes for the Rio Bravo Rumble. If you have been part of this event before then you know you’re in for one heck of a time. For those newbies out there looking to take part for the first time, you’ll soon understand why this event has continued to grow into one of the premier events in Central California.
As always, this event is presented by Glinn & Giordano Physical Therapy with support from Clifford & Brown, Leo Mark Hinds, Guinn Construction, Wonderful Pistachios, Fiji Water, POM Wonderful, Wonderful Citrus, and Multi-Business Systems.
