Beach running can be a lot more difficult than running on concrete or grass, as the surface of the sand feels quite strange if you’re not used to it. I’ve been running on the beach daily for about 20 years, so I now find it quite difficult when I run on hard ground because my body isn’t used to that terrain.
However, if you find the best shoes for running on the beach then you should be able to adapt to beach running quite quickly. When I was buying some new shoes I found a guide on Seaside Planet, which helped me score a great pair of speedos which have really improved my runs.
In the beginning, it might cause you to ache a little more, as your body needs to adjust to the new running style which the terrain demands, but once you’re used to it, you’ll be sure to enjoy your beach runs.
