Welcome to Episode 3 of the Obstacle Order podcast.
In this episode Philip and Elijah are back to talk about how to get ready for your next Obstacle Course race.
Specifically, this episode covers unique ways to prepare for variable terrain you may face on a trail. Most people do most of their running on a treadmill, pavement, or track. This episode will present you with some cool things to try that you might not have thought of yet to better prepare you for the variable demand a trail creates.
To prepare for uneven surfaces there is one great way: run on trails. The problem is many of us don’t have access to trails. One way to overcome this obstacle is to use imbalanced loads while running. This effectively is a top down unbalancing rather than a ground up unbalancing (moving on an unstable surface.)
Elijah discusses his results from his 20k trail run in Rodeo Beach, CA. And the guys go over their workout of the week.
