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.
Welcome to the Great Bunny Chase 5k being held on April 11 at Callaway Resort and Gardens at Robin Beach Lake. Our 5k festivities will begin at 12pm with a Bunny Hop 1/2 mile run for the kids. At 12:30pm our 5k will begin on a flat and fast course around Robin Lake and surrounding roads.
What makes this great??
We are dropping 3,000 easter eggs along the course and the Easter Bunny is waiting to be chased! Choose to chase the bunny or run and collect eggs along the way. Either way this will be a great way to kick off the Easter Weekend.
After the 5k, Callaway Resort and Gardens will hold their annual Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. Check out all the details here: http://www.callawaygardens.com/events/signature-events/easter
