How To Not Fall On Your Ass While Trail Running

...or lessen your chances.


Know terrain
Know every turn, fallen tree, rock, areas prone to gathering water. Know it well. Hike on it. Have that shit memorized.

Focus
This is not a track run. Not no working-on-speed-with-the-well-laid-cushy-blue-surfaces run. Any distraction takes your brain out of the game and then this can happen...
I figured it'd be nice to have some motivational videos playing to boost my run. It was. Until I had to click Skip Ad. I flew threw the air. My dumbass got up and kept running. I fell again. Realized that this video + distraction = falling has validity.

Each step is a millisecond of decision making. The terrain is in your memory and your focus is only on the run so you can scan the environment to know quickly where you're going to place your feet. It's also nice to get up speed.  You want to fly from rock to rock not through the air onto your face. You want to look like a Pritani charging into battle taking back Britain.
