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.
A great cause, a historic venue and heroic sponsors are what makes this event truly outstanding for all participants. Running in the footsteps of some of our Texas heroes like Sam Houston, Deaf Smith, and Juan Sequin will take you back in time to the historic victory that last only 18 minutes. Everyone, including the kids who sprinted and stumbled through the 1K fun run had a great time last year and many of them shared with us how special this event was.
