Although runs on the beach aren’t for everyone there are plenty of benefits to them. Movement on sand strengthens the arches, ankles, and other below-the-knee muscles. The soft unstable nature of sand makes your lower body work in different ways than running on a typical hard surface like street asphalt. Starting at a short distance helps prevent injuries, even for experienced runners. Begin with a slow jog for 10-15 minutes while taking in the ocean air. Make sure to throughly stretch after, you’ll be surprised how certain underused muscles may feel the very next day. Exercising outdoors decreases feelings of tension, anger and depression compared to exercising indoors. It’s important to get a balance between city and nature.
