Trailing running at Bayview
Staying upright at Bayview
SEQ Trail Series Round 4 at Bayview
This would have to be my favourite of the trail series for a few reasons. You have to love how close to Brisbane this beautiful trail is (40mins), plenty of single trail, the switch backs are fun (these have been created on a trail to prevent erosion on the side of the hill so it is important to stay on these trails to help protect the environment) and a quarter of the field was the friendly faces of our intraining run buddies.
This was a fast course as it was reasonably flat for a trail run and not to technical, and it is easy to lose focus and then the inevitable happens …the tumble!!!
A few tips on staying upright on the trail:
not to become complacent stay focused on the trail but run relaxed.
Scan the trail looking from your feet to 2 metres in front.
Slow down if the terrain changes.
Leave a good distance between yourself and the runner in front of you so as you have good view of the upcoming trail.
Lift your feet.
Looking forward to seeing you all for Round 5 of the trail Series at Bunyaville, Sunday the 3rd of Feburary, 2019.
Go intraining …we can all stay upright with practice and the, I can attitude!
