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.

2016 RUNNER TESTIMONIAL

The Flying Pirate is a super race-beautiful course, wonderful management and great volunteers. But the thing that really sets it apart is the way the community embraces the event. A couple passing out champagne shots, the hopscotch course, the random Deejays inspiring us with Michael Jackson jams & Eye of the Tiger riffs from their front porches. And the infinite supply of hand clappers & cowbells motivating runners from mile 1 to mile 13. Running can be a meditative, solitary experience, but when you're working to take it to the next level-a PR, a new distance, not being last in your age group-cheerleaders can make all the difference. The Flying Pirate race captures why people run from the community of runners to the #obxcommunity letting us run on their home turf. It's a celebration of all running can be and proof positive that the best runs are not about the race but the journey.
