I have picked up a niggle on my foot (a stiff joint!) from marathon training - it bloody hurts when I am running on the road so I have hit the trails instead. My only worry is that the trails I run (Sandstone in Cheshire) aren't easy and I am worried every workout is now classed as "hard". I am planning on keeping my long run on the road but I need to minimise impact on foot, hence rest of runs on trail and it is only way I can run pain free.
Question is - do any of you marathon train on hilly trails for a road marathon? (I am doing Manchester end of April) If so, do you just go out on trails and "run" same pace each time? Should I change mileage for time on feet? So do the time it takes me to run an easy 12 miles (around 1:50) on the trails instead rather than 12 miles...?
