Tip Of The Day

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.

About JLA: In 1916, a small group of 45 women strategically linked vision, social capital and trained action to address community challenges on the front lines. Today, as we mark 100 years of service, the Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) is an organization of over 3,500 members donating over 75,000 volunteer hours committed to the same vital mission.

The JLA believes that the collective power of diverse women, joined together to identify unmet needs and forge effective coalitions, can dramatically improve our community. Whether it was improving education through the establishment of the Atlanta Speech School, the Anti-Prejudice Consortium, and AppleCorp; improving the health and well-being of women and children through the creation of ChrisKIDS, The Atlanta Children’s Shelter, Trees Atlanta, or the Atlanta Youth Symphony (which became the Atlanta Symphony); or providing critical funding and volunteer assistance to hundreds of community agencies, the JLA remains at the forefront of making transformational change in Atlanta.
