No Boundaries 10K

The No Boundaries 10K Training Program is for intermediate level runners who have completed a 5K before and who want to train for a 10k event. The program is structured to help you cross the 10K finish line after just 12 weeks. Our 10K training is perfect for No Boundaries 5K training alumni who are looking to take the next step in their training. It is also geared to accommodate runners with 5K experience who are looking to increase their distance. Along the way we’ll provide you with motivation to keep you moving, guidance and advice, weekly group training runs, and educational clinics on topics such as proper nutrition, choosing the right gear, and avoiding injury. Plus you’ll have the camaraderie of others training with you!

The program meets up twice a week during the training period, Monday nights at 6:00pm and Saturday mornings at 8:00am. The workouts will last about an hour to an hour and a half as we increase mileage throughout the season.


The spring program will start Sunday March 11th at 6:00pm with our Training Program Kick-off event. At this event you will meet your coaches/mentors, pick up your training packet and get a chance to meet other members of the group. Our first official practice will start Monday March 12th at 6:00pm at Fleet Feet Sports


What to expect at our Workouts

Each week will have a slightly different focus -- breathing, form, nutrition, etc. Below is an example workout and how our weekly topics are discussed during the training:

  • Welcome/Announcements

  • Weekly Topic

  • Group Dynamic Warmup

  • Find your pace groups

  • Prescribed route for the day - you’ll have turn by turn directions if necessary and mentors leading your group

  • Optional cool down stretching with your group

 

Run/Walk Interval Running

There are many benefits to using a run/walk method in your training. We encourage beginning runners to start using a Run/Walk interval in our No Boundaries Beginner 5K training programs - it’s a great way to get started. But using a Run/Walk interval is not just for beginners - it’s an excellent tool to help you build endurance and help you cross the finish line of your next race. Some of the benefits include:

  • Decreased chance of injury. The run-walk method causes less wear and tear on the body, decreasing the chance of injuries. Continuous use of muscle will result in fatigue much quicker. This method will allow a runner to go farther and/or longer before fatigue sets in.

  • Quicker recovery. With less wear and tear on the body also comes quicker recovery after a run.

  • Breaks up distances into manageable units. Running is as much mental as it is physical - especially when you get into the distance races. Using the run-walk intervals will help with those long distances. Running 3 miles just seems impossible. But breaking it down by runner for a set number of minutes, it’s more manageable.

  • Motivating for new runners. This method allows just about anyone to run any race they want. It doesn’t matter you age, weight, gender, or physical ability. You can be a runner. As you start off slow, you can work your way up to running for a longer amount of time and having fewer walk breaks.
