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.
Catch “Spring Fever” during the 14th Annual Oshkosh Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk, which offers scenic diversity from the historic homes to the river. There will even be themed water stations to get you motivated and massage therapists to ease those aching muscles after you cross the finish line! Finisher shirts and medals for the 26.2, finisher medals for the 13.1 and age group awards for all distances.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Oshkosh, Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services, Inc. and the Oshkosh Area Humane Society. We have also partnered with Make a Wish Foundation for a Special Oshkosh Child who is fighting cancer. His name is James. Please help support James by checking out more info at the Oshkosh Marathon page at dutrirun.com
