Trail running is fun and varied but has also has many merits to be included in your triathlon training plan. This is especially true if you are heading into the winter months and want to mix up your training.
Trail running has many benefits including:
- Becoming a natural fartlek session as the surface and incline vary throughout your run.
- Practising the ability to change you cadence and contact time throughout a run.
- Reducing the impact on your joints as well as teaching your body to stabilise on uneven terrain.
You will need some slightly different gear if you are going to start trail running. This includes some offroad shoes to give you more grip whilst on the trails. As well as this it is a good idea to take a map/phone/GPS to avoid getting lost.
