Train On Different Running Surfaces

Runner Feet Sunrise
I see many people in Texarkana running on side streets as well as in parks and trails.This makes me wonder which surface is the best to run on while training.

After reading the article, “Is running on hard surfaces really bad for your knees?” by Erin Beresini in Outside Magazine, I found the “best bet for avoiding injuries, experts say: mix it up. Incorporate a variety of surfaces into your training, including grass, dirt, asphalt, concrete, and tracks.”

When training, gradually introduce the surface that will be used during the race so your body will become accustomed to it along with wearing the correct size and style of running shoe. In this way, you will be prepared to run the event with less injuries if any at all.
