Cardio key to training for 10K run

From Staff Reports

Eight weeks and counting.

The Greater Clarksburg 10K is quickly approaching, and the road race which is growing in popularity both nationally and internationally is also seeing increased local interest as seen Tuesday night.

More than 70 runners attended the second installment of the 10 Weeks to the 10K -- a program designed to prep runners for the 6.2 mile race through downtown Clarksburg July 28.

Tuesday, program sponsor John Pulice addressed the runners on the importance of two of the basics needed -- cardiovascular conditioning and stretching.

"Obviously for any distance running, the body is going to need oxygen," Pulice said. "Your heart is what's going to oxygenate the body. That's what makes knowing your heart rate so important."

Pulice explained two basics ways of finding your heart rate. From there, he demonstrated how to find your resting heart rate and finding an individual's maximum and target heart rate. The two were included in a short handout given to those in attendance.

Ending the lecture were proper procedures in how to limber up and the importance of stretching.
