Put your hands together for Fit Friday!

The trails have been calling my name as the snow melts and the sun keeps on shining. This is not going to be a summer of PRs and tons of miles, with my health it just can’t be. Instead of sitting on my couch pouting I am getting excited to hit the trails a bit more this summer. Not worrying about paces just focusing on the journey. The trails also give my soul a little bit more of what it needs, some harmonizing time. So this weeks Friday Fit Tips are getting us all in the mountains, whether you are a beginning and trying to figure out how to get started or you are a trail junkie and could just use some reminders.

1) You can’t wear any old shoes out on the trails. Trail shoes are built for traction, foot protection, and stability. Traction being one of the most important ones on that list.

2) Gearing up includes a few things. Let’s start with clothes, breathable and loose. I have found that I do best laying for trails, much more so than when I am staying on the road.

Water is also a big part of gearing up. I almost always suggest taking at least a handheld bottle of water. If you are doing much distance at all consider hydration vests. Trails generally mean you are more secluded and away from people, you don’t want to find yourself lacking and alone.

There are lots more that can be included in gearing up; food, first aid kits, sun protection, lights, and navigation tools. Be prepared folks!

3) When deciding where to go you need to remember that trail and road are different. Trail will typically be slower than road for even basic trails. Add technical trails and/or lots of climbing and your times can be all over the place. If you are new to trail running you may want to look at local parks that have quiet gravel roads and trails. Do some research, get on websites and talk to people. You will find trail runners are friendly and will happily guide you in a good direction.

4) Technique for trails needs to be a bit more focused, keep your eyes up ahead and your stride short. There is no shame in walking the steep parts.

ENJOY!!!! That is the most important part of all. The tips and reminders are there to help make sure you get to enjoy.
