  9. Hey Coach Nate thanks for the great video, I am going to try a trail run up through the woods on Saturday. I have done a Superman twice now sadly on the flats, 2nd time with a tree root.

  11. Any suggestions about reducing the likelihood of ankle sprains? All I've come up with on my own is not to let my attention drift.

  12. Grateful for these!
    Just ran some more hills yesterday, very hard when your new but effective. Tempo 30-50mtr x 10sec rest repeats (depending on the hill) one day. Coupled with 50 or 100mtr flat sprints x 10sec rest different day noticing normal run fatigue lessening.

  13. Jeff Galloway talks a lot about alternating running and walking, even for road running. It's something that can be a bit counterintuitive but he makes some interesting points.

  14. This was great! Thanks so much! Descent has always been difficult for me. You’re right it takes a lot of practice! I’ve fallen a couple of times recently by catching a tree root I didn’t see (hiding under leaves or mud), and once with a switch back (I fell backwards that time). Your tips are super helpful! I’m probably leaning back too much. Time to work on leaning forward.

  15. How can I get TRE Merch? Things like hats and jackets?

  16. I changed from road to trail running a while back, (and appreciated it a lot as I got faster)… but the biggest tip I can give is don't treat the trail as you would the road… If you stride out to far and at pace you can land on uneven ground and slide / slip or twist your ankle and end the day with an injury… take it easy and enjoy!!

  17. great video as usually. But hey, i dont want to be offensive – the camera is not focused properly most of the time. I can see it even on small mobile phone screen! You have been doing these in-terrain videos for long time, and the picture of camera is of high quality, so it must have user friendly focus control. I mean, the camera man should make better work for you after so long time! Hire me as your camera man ! 🙂 that would be honor for me. Great vid anyway

  18. This is a VERY informative video!
    I also enjoy your '3 Hill Running Tips for Stronger Running' video. I used those recommendations when I ran the Run to The Top (Mt. Baldy) race this past Labor Day. Those tips helped immensely! Have you done any videos on post race recovery (no matter the distance)? Not just what to do immediately following a race, but also how much time to take off before getting back into the training grove.
