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.


Pensacola's Run for the Cookies

The 8th Annual Run for the Cookies takes place on a scenic loop trail during the onset of spring. It starts at UWF’s Multipurpose field and loops through the trees, winding down the road and back to the field. There are two major hills and a few turns as the course follows the scenery through the wooded trails of UWF. On the plush grass of the multipurpose field, you finish the race with a loop and cross the finish line. The event also includes a post-race snack and an awards ceremony with a DJ. This run is the only race in Pensacola where you can get a box of Girl Scout for participating. Last year’s race almost sold out, so with this year’s 350-participant limit register early to ensure a spot!
