TOUGH STUFF

Want to vary your trail running and start tackling harder terrain ? Be prepared to put in some hard work , says Christina Macdonald

If your trail routes usually involve flat grass and you fancy moving on to more challenging trails like hills, woods and overgrown forests, there’s good and bad news. The good news is you may well burn more calories if you find the terrain challenging and you’ll probably enjoy the variety. The bad news is you could be more likely to twist an ankle or a knee, or fall over. The solution is to train your body first to get fit for uneven terrain to help you avoid falls and injuries. It’s also important to park those PB aspirations at first and be prepared to adjust your speed.

“If you’re used to terrain like fairly flat grass, where every step is virtually the same, then you’ll need to adapt to the fact that every step [on rougher ground] potentially places new demands on muscles in a different combination,” says personal trainer Jeff Archer from The Tonic Corporate Wellbeing (the-tonic.com). “Slow down to avoid putting any high-intensity pressure on any area of your body.
