Bolder Boulder Training Tips for Beginners

We believe anyone can finish a 10K, and everyone benefits from better fitness—it is one of the foundations of living a BOLD life. 

We offer a few tips to get ready whether you are a walker starting from scratch or a regular runner.  See below. 

Exercise will improve your mental state. 

Exercise 2-4 days a week. Rest in between. Walk as much as you need to. Jog as much as you can. Improve a little bit each week.

Mix it up. 

Mix in hiking, swimming, skiing, cycling, rowing, elliptical, or anything else you enjoy that gets your heart rate up. 

Set a personal goal. 

Set an achievable goal for your current situation. Write it on the back of your bib. Commit to it and you’ll make it happen. Ideas: Set a finish time goal. Jog the last mile. Run the whole thing without stopping. Beat last year’s finish time. Beat your mom or dad. Set a PR (personal record).

Online Support. 

Use the depth of our Facebook Group and our Strava Club in their app for connection and encouragement.
