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.

This is chip-timed event. There will be two (2) Water Stations along the course, and one at the end of the race. The course will start and finish at the pavilion just south of the Truman Scarborough Way entrance of the Chain of Lakes. The courses will be a combination of cross-county and asphalt trails. Stunningly beautiful yet still utilitarian, Chain of Lakes Park is 92.14 acres of wetlands, lakes and sports venues. The home of ospreys, gulls and other waterfowl, this "working park" features walking trails, bird watching tower and connected lakes, as well as eight lighted soccer fields and three youth and four adult lighted softball fields, plus concessions and new indoor restrooms. Service animals only.
Parking is close to the start / finish line area. Please park in the open dirt parking lot just a few yards from race headquarters. Do NOT park in the soccer parking lots.
