  • Being Mindful of the Trail

    Ankle stability & mobility blog

    One of the benefits of trail running is that, compared to road running, the trail offers a greater variation in surfaces so you work your body differently with nearly every footstep.

    For the same reason running in different pairs of shoes regularly may decrease overuse injuries, so can trail running - Different shoes, different terrains, etc all load the legs slightly differently. This spreads out the loading and impact forces to a wider range of body structures rather than hitting the same spot over and over again. Read More

  • How to Love Your Run, Again


    I am sure I am not the only runner who sometimes struggles with a bit of a lack of motivation.

    Well, who am I trying to kid here? Complete lack of motivation. Yeah, it happens to the best of us.
