The importance of changing your pace
Most runners are now very loyal to their watch, but in winter it's totally normal to slow downThe extra clothes, the cold and the uneven surface are all things that naturally cause us to lose speed on winter rides.Thus, if we try to keep the training rhythms of the regular season, we will experience some disappointments.
Slowing down will allow us not to run after exhaustion, but also to have satisfactions at the end of our outingsWinter is therefore a good time to learn to run on "feeling" and accept what is possible in the circumstances.
Adapt your stride to run without injury
From a more technical aspect, when the surface becomes more difficult when snow and ice are present, the stride inevitably has to be adjustedIn this sense, it may be relevant to slightly shorten his step, without however trampling, so that contact with the ground is made more effectively and that he becomes more solid on the ground.
You should notice that by adjusting your stride, the contact will be more towards the middle and the front of the foot, which can also help prevent fallsYou will then have a more dynamic stride that will allow you to stay on your feet throughout your rides.Your body will thank you!
