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.
South River High School will host our very first Frostbite 5K on Saturday, March 17, 2018 on the school campus. This is an exciting opportunity to support students in our community and students abroad.
The race will be a student-lead event benefiting Sneakers for Senegal and South River’s Prom Breakfast.
Sneakers for Senegal is a direct supporter of Open International, a nonprofit organization that founded a school in Nioro, Senegal. Sneakers for Senegal’s mission is to provide shoes for Senegalese students. These students walk over 5 miles to school every day, either barefoot or with duct tape wrapped around their feet.
South River’s Prom Breakfast provides students with a safe alternative to after prom activities. The Prom Breakfast is held at the school and is staffed by South River administration, teachers and parent volunteers.
Please join us for this special event and bring family and friends too!
