Surfaces

Today I did 30 easy but fun minutes on ever changing surfaces. Just look at my prints, if this doesn’t warm up legs and feet I don’t know what does:

From small pebbles to larger rocks:

From rocks to heaven:

Just look at it and imagine running there:

And then my second favorite surface:

What are you running on these days?

      1. Nothing wrong with running off road. Unfortunately I don’t have trails/parks close to me, so running on the road can be more convenient.

        And since most of my races are road races, it helps to train on the same surface.

  1. I dont envy you the large pebbles. Holiday memories tell me that I struggle to walk on them, legs wobbling at every joint, so I don’t know how I could run! You must have really strong muscles to manage it!

    1. I couldn’t walk on them in the beginning either. Maybe 5 minutes … and I was miserable. I bet all the pebbling has made my feet super strong indeed. I believe it is good for trails as well. It also helps the mind as I have to focus on each step. I only looked at the sunrise once while pebbling … and fell on my nose.

      1. I’m sure it will be good for strength and stability! Like everything I expect you have to build it gradually for success! Although falling over on that – ouch!!!!
