Trail Jogging

I believe it’s jogging or yogging. It might be a soft J. I’m not sure but apparently you just run for an extended period of time. It’s supposed to be wild. – Ron Burgundy

After tearing an ACL this past winter, I have just now been able to start jogging again. Because I’m still recovering from the surgery on my knee, I’ve turned away from running on the unforgiving asphalt of the street and switched to the more joint friendly surface of dirt and grass. I’m now a trail jogger.

My trail of choice is located inside Gardiner County Park in Bay Shore, NY. The soft ground helps take the impact off my knee, and the shade from the trees are a welcomed break during the 90 degree days we’ve been experiencing here in the Northeast. The run is quick, flat and will take you through some of the last wooded areas along the South Shore of Long Island.

  1. try running on soft sand at the beach too. good workout, and will be just as good if not better for rehabing yr knee



  2. The idea of running in the shade to stay cool is so foreign to me I can’t even begin to explain. I can’t leave for a run without a winter hat on. Summer in San Francisco is awful.
