5 Weeks to a 5k!

5 weeks to a 5k

So you may be a little rusty on the whole running thing. Whether it’s your first 5k or you haven’t been out to run lately because of this dreary winter, we want to make sure you are totally prepared for the 5k Foam Fest. The schedule will help you get from rest to a 5K in just 5 weeks! Here are some more tips and tricks to training before race day:

Strength training: Our race has obstacles, meaning you will be trudging through mud and climping up 2 story slides. Make sure you are strong enough for this!

Eat a balanced diet: Running is no fun when you feel weighed down by a jumbo burger, fries, and large soda. Make sure to skip the fats and obsessive carbs and get your veggie on.

Run with friends: If you don’t think you can do it by yourself, bring a friend. They can help motivate you to push farther than you have before!

Have Fun: Running is a lot better with a smile on your face, and who knows you might just make some friends along the way.
