Let's face it, we're all busy. And when you're busy, running is one of the first things to go. In today's episode, I share the 4 steps I've taken to build a consistent running routine that lasts, even with my busy schedule. Plus learn more about an exciting new project at Rock Creek Runner.
Over the past few years, available gear for trail runners has exploded. The good news?
This means we're a community worth investing in, and the result is new and improved gear. The bad news?
More gear = more questions. Do I really need a handheld and a pack? A pack with a bladder and a pack with bottles? What shoes work best for my trails? Are trail running shorts really better than road running shorts?
Should I carry this stuff on every run?
It's complicated. And if you're not careful, it leads to spending a ton of money while seeing few results.
In today's episode I try to answer those questions and save you a little money. I break down all the essential gear items for trail runners, and my personal preferences for short, medium, and long runs or races.
Here's what to expect from this episode:
I spend a lot of time trying to convince road runners to give the trail a try. Today I'm flipping that around.
Just like road runners see benefits to running trails, trail runners can see major improvements by spending some days on the road.
In today's episode, I discuss the benefits to road running, and specific workouts trail runners should pound out on the pavement.
Remember those tiny 1% improvements from episode 4? Well now I want you to go big! And I want us to do it together.
Let's set a massive goal and use those small steps to make it a reality. Will you join me in doing something great?
