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 Green Bowie Veterans Day 5K is the first City-sponsored 5K! But don’t let the name 5K fool you; this is a free fun run/walk for all community members, City staff, and most importantly our veterans and their families. The course starts at the fountain at the Bowie Town Center and goes past City Hall, through Centennial Park, passes around Allen Pond and the Dog Park, winds a bit through one neighborhood, and ends just about where we start. Green Bowie businesses will be present, as will many City community organizations, the Daughters of American Veterans and Veterans of Foreigh Wars, Sport Fit, the Bowie Police and more!
All participants will receive a free shirt.
Come out for this first annual FREE fun run to celebrate our veterans and our community!
November 10, 2018 from 8-10 am.
