Our Fall 2017 No Boundaries II program is a 10 week follow up program to No Boundaries. Participants will train to cross the finish line of a 5K faster than a previous attempt and will increase their knowledge (and love!) of running. Mileage will be longer than the race distance and we will introduce speed work and interval training. This program is designed for graduates of No Boundaries and those who can already run two miles without stopping, or with limited walk breaks. However, you do not have to be a No Boundaries graduate to join No Boundaries II.
For this program our graduation race will be the Jingle Bell Run 5K on Sunday, November 12. However, you can also use this program to train for any race you choose or just to run with great people. There will be a program informational session on Tuesday, August 29 at 7:15 pm at the Store. Past participants will be here to share their story. Come find out if this is the right program for you. Our program kick-off and first workout will be Tuesday, September 5 at 6:00 pm.
When: Training runs will be at 6:00 pm on Tuesdays and 8:00 am on Saturdays from September 5 - November 12.
Where: The group will meet at Fleet Feet Sports Bloomington, Rollingbrook Park and other locations in Bloomington-Normal. Participants will receive a program calendar that highlights where the group will meet each week as well as weekly email reminders
Program Cost: $70 per participant (does not include race registration fee).
Participants will have the option to add a weekly strength training workout on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm with Positive Training at The Warehouse(1103 Martin Luther King Drive in Bloomington). The additional fee for this option is $5 per session.
There are two different strength training formats during our workouts on Wednesdays. Functional Circuit Training Wednesdays will focus on strength/power, while our Yoga Wednesdays will focus on strength/flexibility. A strength-training program developed specifically for runners can help keep you healthy and out on the road, in addition to improving your speed and endurance. Targeted strength training for hips, glutes, and legs helps runners stay balanced, decreasing your chance of sustaining injuries related to strength imbalances or weak areas. A strong core helps runners maintain good form over as many miles, move more efficiently, and decreases strain on joints. It can also help with cardiovascular performance, allowing you to breathe more fully to give your muscles the oxygen they need to keep going.

**A 10-week training program and calendar with workouts provided
