Beach Running

Posted on June 27, 2013 by admin

A great little workout if you have not tried it is jogging on the beach. The uneven surface and soft texture of the sand contribute toward a workout that has the potential to tire you out more quickly, while cushioning your step. Before you incorporate beach runs into your jogging routine. Here is the best way to do this.
Put sunscreen on exposed areas of skin, and wear sunglasses and a hat or visor. Even early in the morning or late in the evening, the sun’s rays reflect off the water and can cause you to quickly develop sunburn.

Wear appropriate running clothes that allow your skin to breathe and wick moisture from your body. Pick one pair of shoes for jogging on the beach, because they will get sandy, inside and out. “Runner’s World” suggests shoes that have a tight mesh covering an open weave mesh to reduce the amount of sand that gets in your shoes. Wear synthetic socks and use a skin lubricant, if necessary, to keep sand particles from rubbing against and irritating your skin.

Properly warm up and stretch before starting. Walk slowly at first, graduating to a brisker pace for a couple of minutes

Run on the wet sand near the water for a firmer, cooler surface. Increase the challenge of your workout, if you desire, by adding one to two minute intervals of running in the dry sand, followed by jogging on the wet sand for three to five minutes. Jog for a duration of 20 to 30 minutes and slowly increase your beach jogging time by five minutes each week.

Walk barefoot in the sand for five minutes after your run to cool down your muscles. According to Harvard Medical School, walking barefoot strengthens the muscles in your feet and ankles. Make sure the sand is free of debris, stones and glass to avoid injuring your feet.
