Tip Of The Day

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.

TARC to Hale and Back

Winters can be long in New England. Very long. In year's past, the Animals would shake off the sleepy eyes of a winter spent hibernating at the Spring Thaw. This year, the Animals will be crawling out of hibernation to welcome dirt and longer days, back at Hale Reservation, at the TARC: To Hale and Back 5k & 6-Hour! Moved a couple of weeks later in March in the hopes that we can avoid feet of snow pack and maybe get a chance to feel some fresh dirt under our paws (er, shoes), the 6-hour race will now be held on March 23, starting at 9:05 AM. The 5K will get started 5-minutes prior, right at 9:00, to give all those super-fast people a chance to motor up ahead. So come on out, shake all that winter snow off your back, and join the pack to run To Hale and Back! AHHHHHWWWWOOOO! This event will be (or is) sanctioned and insured by USA Track & Field - those guys are the best!
