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.
Come on out to Clearwater the morning of the 4th of July for the best Independence Day run in the USA! It's the perfect way to start your day with a family friendly 5K run or walk 7/04/2019 beginning at 9 a.m. Don't worry about your speed we draw a very fun promotional crowd and Buffalo Wild Wings Clearwater is one of our favorite post race party locations on the www.727CanRace.com calendar.
This is an electronically timed 5K but no age group awards. Awards will be presented to the first 10 males and first 10 females across the finish line (and as always “some special categories ” )…..the rest of us will be out there in good fun in an electronically timed but non-competitive 3.1 mile run or walk along the Ream Wilson Trail in Clearwater.
Check in is race day only beginning at 8 a.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings in Clearwater. There is plenty of parking in the Buffalo Wild Wings Clearwater parking lot. The course is entirely flat and paved so it is stroller/family friendly. Our post race party is in the ice cold air conditioning inside Buffalo Wild Wings.
Check in opens at 8 a.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings 21688 US Hwy 19 N, Clearwater, FL 33765 located in the shopping plaza on the corner of US 19 and Drew.
The course is entirely paved so it is family friendly and stroller friendly. The 5K will begin 9 a.m.
The run is hosted annually by Xanadu Race Management so for questions please text Suzanne at 727-CAN-RACE (727-226-7223) or email XanaduRaceManagement@gmail.com
