I am enjoying off road running at the moment, it’s a great way to improve general running strength. I challenged myself at The Rough and Tumble on Sunday 14th January. Billed as one of the toughest multi terrain races in Wiltshire, it certainly lived up to its reputation. There were a couple of hills that definitely were not runnable. Chuffed to be 10th of 191 females and 3rd in my age category (hanging on to v35 just!), but then conditions were ideal for me – off road and not too muddy/slippery. The usual DOMS (delayed onset of muscle soreness) alleviated by a spot of sports massage that evening and enough food to sink a boat 🙂
Feel free to get in touch if you have any need for my Chippenham sports massage or massage therapy.
