Is it better to run on or off-road?

Whether you are training on the roads or the trails, running is a fantastic way to work out and off-road training is increasing in popularity. One of the great advantages of hitting the trails is that the constantly varying surface and topography of most off-road routes challenges your body more and also builds all round strength in the ankles and knees. Additionally, the softer surface is more forgiving on your joints so try to include at least one off-road session each week in your running programme.

I’m following a marathon training plan but occasional snowy and icy conditions are interfering with my training. I’m not keen on treadmill sessions so have you got any tips for how I can continue to train safely outdoors.

I live in a very hilly area and cannot avoid running up hills, does too much hill running affect the muscles you need to run on flat routes?
