With the massive snowstorm that slammed NYC and the northeast last night, we have the perfect opportunity to break out the snowshoes and get in some fun cross-training. Snowshoeing is a great form of training, most specific to running, that builds endurance and muscular strength. There is a fair amount of adaptation that needs to occur, so if it’s your first time, take it slow and build up the total time over a few days with a mix of walking and slow jogging. For those triathletes who don’t already have snowshoes, check out some of these top picks for lightweight, high-tech options that are designed for running and be sure to pack them on your next ski trip for an efficient workout alternative. Throw on a headlamp and head onto the trails for a twilight workout!
