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.
It's that time again to dust off your running shoes, grab a protein bar and join us in raising money to bring joy to children touched by cancer. Inspired by Ella Tosch who lost her battle in September of 2015 but remains in all of our hearts, we'll be loading up our own Family Truckster and paying Children's Hospital and The Ronald McDonald House of Detroit a couple of visits during the sweltering days of summer.
Registration for the 5K is $25 but everyone is welcome. Whether you plan on running to beat your personal best time or walking with or without your little ones, maybe to get your steps in, it promises to be a good time.
So make sure to mark your calendars and start hydrating! We'll help you carb-load prior to the race with bagels and protein bars and cool you down upon your return with some of Connor's famous lemonade, summer cucumber salad, hot dogs of course and a few other surprises. Plus, there'll be prizes for the winners, a raffle and an abundance of good karma! This cause is very special to us and we cannot thank our family and friends enough for all of their support.
Make sure to arrive early enough to check in and stretch. We don't want any pulled hammies out there!
