This morning we had another fun session running around the woodland trial at Lancaster University and the trim trail. The weather managed to stay dry and we all had a good run and full body workout on the trail. This sort of workout is excellent training to improve strength and fitness as it teaches your legs to run even when they are tired.
Tonight we met at the Trim Trail at Lancaster University. We adapted the exercises along the trim trail to make them accessible to everyone. It was beautiful running through the trees on the bark trail. Running off road is great for stabilising your core and using all your muscles as you twist and turn, avoiding roots and sticks, and the muscles which help you balance and keep running with good form.
