5 Reasons Why You Need Trail Running In Your Life

Winter’s coming.

The dark nights are here. You’re putting on the lights at 7pm, there’s more of a nip in the air, and for many of you, this is where running is put on the shelf.

I’m here to try to change your mind with this post. How? Trail running.

The One With The Bog

The windup to the Siglion Sunderland 10km is ON!

I absolutely love it when the time comes to get the speed endurance in the legs and also, get that sensation, when you know that you can run the distance needed within a time that’s acceptable – of course, like every runner at every event, we always look for that PB.

Topping Up My Running

It’s been quite a week for myself, if I’m going to be honest.

The diary is slowly starting to look buff with potential race dates and plans, with a few Parkruns thrown in there for good measure.

I genuinely think that planning is key to having a successful running year. It gives you that kick up the backside you need to get out the door or a reason to put a bit of work in for the next 8-12 weeks, you would have read a bit about this in my last blog. Continue reading “Topping Up My Running”
