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 Covenant House Florida and the race:
Since opening in September of 1985, Covenant House Florida provides both crisis shelter and walk-in services for runaway, homeless, trafficked and at-risk youth under the age of 21, including young mothers and their babies. Covenant House Florida has helped over 37,000 different kids providing them with food, clothing, shelter, medical services, counseling, GED preparation, parenting education, life skills, and job readiness training.
Our mission is to serve suffering children of the street and protect and safeguard all children. We work to provide children and young adults with the tools they need to have productive, hopeful futures. Your participation in this race allows us the opportunity to continue to serve homeless youth and young adults.
The 5K Run/Walk will start and end at the World Famous Parrot Lounge, located at 911 Sunrise Lane, next to Sunrise Boulevard and A1A.
