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.
Join Team RWB Phoenix and StartLine Racing as we host the 6th Annual Veterans Day 5K, 10K, and 1 Mile run/walk on Sunday, November 11, 2018 at Kiwanis Park.
Whether you are a competitive runner looking for a new PR on this fast, flat course, or you are ready to run your first event, or just looking for a fun, family activity on a beautiful Saturday morning, all ages and ability levels are welcome!
A Portion of the proceeds will go directly to Team Red, White and Blue. Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
