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.
The FICPA Scholarship Foundation 1040K is an event that has stayed in South Florida for over 28 years. The 29th annual 1040K is a great way to celebrate the end of tax season; unite CPAs and the local community; and contribute to a worthwhile scholarship fund. All proceeds from this race provide scholarships to deserving South Florida accounting students.
