I've recently transitioned to barefoot/minimalist running over the last couple of years. When cold i run in Vivo Neos with no insole. I've always been a road runner and completed a sub 4 marathon a couple of years ago. I'm up to 8 miles on the road without any issues but off road on trails with mild hilly areas my legs struggle and i start getting mental blocks and stop. i dont try to run at the same pace as the road and would really like to stop the road runnning and move permanently to trails.
i presume i need a strength program (which i have never done before) and to incorporate speed work and hill work?
i currently run 15-20 miles per week over 3 days but with no real structure so would appreciate some advice on how to transition.
