Gravel Training

Inspired by Todd Ragsdale, I started gravel training today. I only did it for about 10 minutes, but I can already feel the great effects! Not only that, I can't wait to do it again!

 Some small gravel with light litter

After running in place and also within the range of what you can see in the picture, I ran on some larger gravel. Surprisingly, that gravel didn't bother me. What does this mean? Most of my gravel and rock running issues are psychological. It may hurt a little, but no where near as much as I think. If I keep this up, along with some laps around Lake Zwerner, I'll be in tip-top shape for the 5K.

  1. Great idea, I've heard of people doing this. Just never attempted it myself.
