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.
Our much loved friend and Coach, Jason Kilderry, lost his battle with cancer on December 18, 2017. Jason’s zest for life and adventurous spirit will continue to live on through his greatest legacy, his son Finn. Those of us who followed Jason on Facebook loved his weekly postings about his escapades with Finn - #FINNFRIDAY
In keeping with Jason's tradition to make Finn the center of attention on Friday, we have organized #FINNFRIDAY 5K to raise funds for Finn's education (particularly the most immediate need which is his preschool tuition). The first Annual #FINNFRIDAY 5K will take place on a scenic 10-foot-wide, asphalt-paved trail in the heart of Glassboro, NJ. The route is a fast, flat out and back. A one mile fun run will also be offered for children 12 and under. An after party at Landmark Americana will immediately follow the race.
Rain or Shine! No refunds.
