I am a beginning trail runner, so this was a good book for me. It gives good tips as to running techniques, etc. that are different on a trail than on a paved surface. Uphills, downshills, rocks, etc. It also has a glossary of trail terms which helped me decide on what trail runs to do.
A really good primer for runners moving from the road to the trails. I enjoyed the quick read and felt enlightened. Good for reducing the knocks in the school of hard knocks for trail runners.
Succinct reminders to somewhat experienced trail runners and good points for those new to trail running. No need to wade through scientific articles to prove the point.
I really enjoyed the short but informative book. Picked up several things that I will be using. Nice for newbies…don’t get buried in too much information.
These tips are handy. It’s always good to be reminded to the basics. Trails are great fun and can be enjoyed by anybody.
