For many people, running presents many obstacles including the chance of injury. Because running is such an impact sport, the harsh pounding from miles and miles on the pavement, can cause many different types of running injuries.
This is one of the reasons why triathlon in itself is becoming such a popular sport. Athletes like the three disciplines. Not only do the three sports give the athlete the chance to break things up, it also allows them to cross-train and hopefully keep injury free.
So, what if you love to run and still find that you have running injuries no matter what type of shoes you wear and how careful you are. Give trail running a try. Not only does trail running strengthen different muscles that you do not use while road running, it will also delay the onset of any type of injury because of the comparatively soft dirt.
