Tired of running on the roads or pavements? Maybe it is time to shift to trail running in the woods nearby. For most people used to the dreary and boring pavement running, the transition to trail running can be almost therapeutic.
If the trail is good enough, you will enjoy running in a cool and fresh environment where you can explore the scenery, commune with nature and have some little peace all by yourself free from the stares and interference by passers by.
Trail running is not just about the quiet, nature and peace. It will also transform you into a better and more determined runner. There is a reason why some of the world’s best athletes practice on off-road trails or in the woods.
As you run in this kind of surrounding, and surmount various kinds of trail obstacles, you quickly learn how to intuitively maintain balance, stabilise yourself and change course as quickly as possible based on the demands of the trail. This level of challenge forces you to be adaptable and develop a high level of endurance; skills that you would otherwise not develop in a smooth pavement.
