wildrunner trail running events and network
Well if you want a workout that will be an important part of your trail prep for the year stairs have got to be at the top of the list and with that I recommend that you try fit the West Cliff stairs into your training somewhere, I did this workout this morning for the first time and.... OH WOW, what an awesome workout. How it started is that I needed to find a place to park so I could warmup before and cooldown after so decided on the JHB botannical gardens without measuring distance, it turned out to be a 4.5km warmup and cooldown which is good. I did 10 up and 10down repeats of the 120m +- 100 step drill and I felt great afterwards. In prep for those brutal Hennops mountains these steps or any others in fact must definitely be added to your training program. I know that I can be weak on the hills but adding this to my training will make me stronger than ever.
Another stair training workout I can recommend is the Ruimsig Stadium stairs, this includes the small stairs and big stairs, the bigger stairs are great for preparing us for those boulders we sometimes have to tackle.
Below is a link to a map of where the stairs are. The stairs go from Westclff Drive up to Woolston Rd.
