GET STRONG ON GRASS.
This week we'll be doing a speed session on the grass at Hazlehead.
Runners spend a large amount of time running on roads and pavements but we shouldn't forget there are huge benefits from running on grass - even just occasionally.
Grass is much more forgiving on our bodies than tarmac or concrete.
There's much less impact on joints and it causes less muscle damage.
Running on grass strengthens your muscles,tendons and ligaments because you have to work harder to keep your pace up. You don't get the same rebound that comes from a hard surface so your muscles have to work harder.
And when you go back to running on firmer surfaces, your performance should be better.
Running on grass also improves your balance as you adjust to the slightly uneven surface. This also leads to better running efficiency and form.
So, let's give it a go - you'll enjoy it.
This session is suitable for ALL runners.
We are a friendly group and always keen to help newcomers - so come along - and bring a friend.
Coaching, encouragement and good advice will be on hand throughout.
There's ample free parking and our meeting point will be the Hazlehead Park main car park at the top of the running track.
Please arrive ready to start at 6pm. The whole session,including warm-ups/cool down and exercises, lasts one hour.
