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 time to chase moonlight.... and race sunlight! The 5K in Paradise starts at 1am on the night Daylight Savings Time changes, giving you 1 hour to beat the time change. Finish the run to a tropical paradise complete with live palm trees, fruity drinks and beach music! Finishers will get a cool moon medal and our legendary pajama pants (they will be lightweight to get you ready for warm weather!!)
Don't want to stay up late?? Come race sunlight! We will have a SECOND race at 8am, where you can race sunlight with the same tropical fun! Finishers will get a shirt that matches the pajama pants and a groovy sun medal!
