I started running a couple of months ago - usually running in the evening after work and at the weekend. So far all the running I've done has been on the road/pavement. Fancied something different today, and ended up doing my run in a woodland/park type area - lots of muddy trails and hills and different surfaces. Really good fun, but felt a lot harder than the running I do on the roads.
Just wondering if I should be doing more of this type of running rather than just sticking to main roads?
Also, is it normal for it to feel more difficult than running on concrete on the main roads? The run I did today felt a lot harder than the last time I did it!
