Week 2: Training for the BolderBOULDER

Beginners will focus on building their base while more experienced runners start to add distance during the second week of training for the 2014 BolderBOULDER.

If you're inactive or you've never run before, follow the "Couch to 10k" guide through ten weeks and you will be ready for the race on Memorial Day. "Beginner" runners are those who are active enthusiasts who may have some experience running 5k races. "Intermediate" runners are those who have probably run the BolderBOULDER in the past and want to break their personal records this year.

All of the training plans are brought to you by the official training apparel of the BoulderBOULDER, Helly Hansen and powered by the BolderBOULDER's official digital training sponsor, mapmyrun.
