It seems like a lot has been going on these days, none of it is necessarily bad news, which is always good. I came back from a weekend in LA and hit up the local high school trail that I ran when I was in cross country.
Trail running is one of the fastest growing running disciplines in the UK and is a great excuse to get out in the hills allowing you to cover bigger than normal distances and get fit in the process. At its heart, trail running is very simplistic, all you need is a pair of decent shoes, and the motivation to get out and explore. Rough ground and increased twists and turns can seem tough at first, but regularly heading off-road will help you cultivate stronger ankles, knees and quads, solid core stability, and a sharper running technique. If you are sticking to your local park and summer running then your usual road shoes should be fine, but on more technical ground and in wetter conditions you will want to look at a trail specific shoe, perhaps something like the Salomon XA-Pro or La Sportiva Wild Cat.
A trail shoe will have increased traction, to grip in wet and muddy conditions, toe bumpers to protect your toes from rocks and roots and a more durable fabric to help keep mud and water out. The UK is full of potential trails, all you need is an OS map, a compass and a little imagination… But if you aren’t ready to head out on your own, then speak to your local running club, most will have at least a few members running off road regularly.

I walked into the local feed store yesterday looking for a natural anti-inflammatory for three of our elderly arthritic wolves. Ano tras ano las maratones mas importantes baten records, se crean nuevas carreras y se hace mas popular la practica de este economico deporte, cuanto necesitamos es una zapatillas y poco mas, ni cuotas de gimnasio ni sofisticado material. This came directly from my internet-running-coach and fellow runner, Caleb Masland [Twitter, DailyMile, Blog]. Technically it was the 3rd week since the program tells you to move ahead if you can do more than a certain amount during the initial test. Trail running allows you to explore the hills in a different way, moving swiftly it brings freedom and endless views, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. From your local suburban park paths, to the fells of the Lake District or mountains of Scotland and beyond, the options are endless. A slightly lower heel allows for more ankle flexibility and cushioning is reduced as trail running is much softer than pounding the concrete. For longer runs you need to make sure you carry a protective layer in case the weather turns nasty so you may wish to use a small rucksack or hydration pack, maybe something like the CamelBak Octane XCT 3 or Osprey Talon 8. In one photo I took, the wolves are in full run, the left front paw of one in precisely the same position as the left front paw of the other. I hope he doesn’t mind, but if you ever need running tips or advice, he’s definitely the one to go to. Although I wasn’t able to measure the mile markers accurately, I did keep track of the splits for each checkpoint and was pleased to run negative splits.
It is always a learning process getting through the first training plan and finding out what works for you.


If you are heading to more remote areas its worth carrying a mobile phone, a map (you can always cut it down to just the area you need), compass and whistle and a couple of energy gels.
The first time I caught it in a photograph I thought I was brilliant, but since then realized it is a frequent form of communication.

The first day was harder than I expected, but by the 3rd day, I was surprised at how much more pushups I was able to do. Only 3 more weeks and I’m supposed to be able to do 100 straight pushups, sounds hard right? I still have a 5K and half marathon planned for next month, so I’ll do my best to make sure I can still get an equivalent workout in for the day. I had to drop my sister off at the airport which was only a 30 minute drive, but I was still nervous about falling asleep at the wheel. Fortunately, I was able to get a power nap (although not very successful) and had an energy drink to help keep me up.
