This summer I started running on the beach in loose sand to train for my first trail.
Lacking hills around here I had to do something to get my quads burning…
All in all it did help I think, so after my resting weeks I decided yesterday it was time to hit the beach again.
Only problem was … Daylight saving time kicked in four weeks back.
That meant running in the dark. On the beach.
Not the brightest idea as I ended up tripping more than I wanted to.
On the bright side: I did feel my quads burning =]
Pros about running on the beach:
Soothing sea sounds
Heavy training without having to get in my car
Cons about running on the beach:
When dark: tripping…
Far from even underground, not always good for the joints…
Do you have a beach nearby? Do you like beach running or like to stay on the road close by?
Bonus (as I lack pictures for now): a post-run selfie 😉
