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.
In 2016, we had a crazy idea. A 5k with flavor. Those flavors...BEER.
We wanted everyone to experience cool beer spots in and around Atlantic City, and cap it off with an incredible time at The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival. Below you'll find info on the 3rd annual Hops Trot 5k Run!
The 2018 Hops Trot 5k Run will start and end at The Atlantic City Convention Center. No need to leave bags at one point and pick them up in another, on the other side of town. Our staff will attend to your belongings as you run, jog, and sip your way through and past some of Atlantic City's best beer joints while tasting some incredible New Jersey Brews.
