Beginner 5k Training - Spring '17

Welcome to No Boundaries, our beginner, couch to 5k, training program - Spring Edition

Often, the first step is the hardest and that's why No Boundaries was created.  This program is your first step to a new and healthier lifestyle. It utilizes the run/walk method of training and very gently increases the distance and run time each week. We start with one mile, and run one minute and walk two minutes. Nine weeks later, our training run is 3.25 miles in which we run 4 minutes, walk one minute. Little by little each week, you grow and build upon the previous week. This is a supportive, non-competitive class for anyone that can already power walk 1 mile. Join the fun and see what you can accomplish!
