When you move to trail running, is it normal to get tired feet? Not sore (the way you would from standing all day), but tired (like if you walked too far in flip-flops) needing to stretch out. I don't know if I am in the wrong shoes or just need to adjust to the surface change (now mostly VERY heavy mud).
I am in Saloman Crossmax and have tried tighter and looser lacing already...
Am running in Saloman Crossmax. They work great (bar the ties not going into the toungue the way they should), and stand up to the dreadful amount of mud we have had recently. Would not recommend them for hotter climes though.
There are lots out there but one of the gentlest ones is a Comrades training plan (google "bonitas comrades" and then choose your level). Consider that this is running a week earlier than Comrades. All that said, I am not sure if anything needs to be changed to account for being on trail not road (other than moving the long runs to trail)... Suggestions?
Stress fracture and a near term goal meant I maintained cardio using a stationary bike (low impact and able to survive it infront of the tv). The evil bike allowed muscles to get lazy, resulting in a nice case of ITB. Enter my first foam roller. Who would ever have thought anything could be THAT painful!!! Anyway, a couple of weeks later I am able to use it with my full weight on it. It certainly helped me, but I would never replace seeing a physio with it.
