Miss Nichole’s Fitness Tips. . . 

Holy cow I need schedules to come back into my life. With all that is…or isn’t…going on I keep losing track of what day it is.

We have made it through another month of pandemic life. At this stage in the game it is starting to look a little different for some of us. In my neck of the woods we have moved to “orange” status. This means that things are starting to open again and it is feeling like we are starting to move back toward “normal”. While gyms are beginning to open back up its is on a very limited scale. No kids at the gym but still no school means that I still won’t be going back to the gym, but that doesn’t mean that I am sitting on my couch in a haze. I have found my optimism is rising and along with it my energy. Hallelujah!

With Spring, sunshine, and renewed energy my soul is calling for the trails. I have posted before about my love for the trails, every year my want, need, desire for the trails grow. Last summer I developed a whole new level of love for trail running, hitting the dirt, and being in the mountains. 
Long story short; your speed doesn’t matter on the trails and you can’t feel sorry for yourself in the mountains. With races being canceled and life feeling off kilter it is the perfect time to hit the dirt.

For today’s fit tips I wanted to give some beginner (or reminder) tips for trail running.

1) Make sure your shoes fit correctly and are built for trails. Road shoes will not give you the support you need on the trail. They also won’t last long on the rocks,

2) Along with the right shoes you need the right gear. Comfortable clothes that are seasonally appropriate. If you are heading up in the mountains keep in mind the weather may not be the same as it is in the valley.

3) Choose trails wisely. Check the terrain, the climb, and be prepared for the distance. I love the AllTrails app to keep my bearings.

4) Trail running is not the same as road running. You need to pay attention to the trail in order to stay up right.

Use these days to get out and explore. In the mountains you can find hope, beauty, happiness, and so much more.
