Today, National Fitness Director and Olympian Carrie Tollefson is here to answer another question for our "Ask Coach Carrie" series. Karissa, Wendy and Audra all wondered: "Would love your opinion on how valid treadmill training is in the colder months ... compared to how much effort we should put in to find those indoor tracks or brave the cold."

This blog is part of a series where our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, brings tips for injury prevention and strength training to help improve our running performance. Today Carrie shares information about the value of running on different surfaces, such as gravel, wood chips and grass. #trainingtiptuesday
"A lot of us spend a lot of time on the black top and on concrete, and that's ok at times," Carrie shares, "but really to get off those surfaces and onto the soft is really going to help our knees and our joints out."
Did you know that Moms on the Run gives back more than 10% of its profit to charity? When Karissa Johnson founded Moms on the Run in 2008, she and her husband Ben wanted to make sure they donated portions of the company's profit to charities doing important, God-honoring work to help those in need.
Today, National Fitness Director and Olympian Carrie Tollefson is here to debut "Ask Coach Carrie." Her first training question comes from Elissa Weller, who asks: "I'd love any tips you have to increase speed longer periods (for me, the goal is to try to get that elusive sub-30 5k, but for others it could be a different time goal). I feel like I make some progress with the intervals in the fall, and then I lose all of that progress when we move indoors for the winter and never seem to gain it back in the spring."
