Beach running - playlist
With research proving that running on soft sand takes 1.6 times more energy than running on hard surfaces, it’s not just a glorious way to start the day - it’s a darn good workout too.
Runners’ bodies are leaner, with more muscle mass, lower BMI (body mass index), and they are generally just happier people. Have you wondered how – and why – runners seem to be “addicted” to their running regimen?
You’ve probably heard your friends complain that if they don’t get to run every morning/evening that they feel “draggy” and even irritable.
When it’s a consistent form of exercise, running’s benefits are so valuable that your body and your mind notices the absence when you stop, even for a week.
Running on the beach is one of those idyllic pursuits that really makes you feel like you’re living in an advertisement.
Up early, kissed by the first rays of the sun and with acres of unspoiled sand to conquer - perhaps followed by a post-run dip in the ocean. What could be better?
But before you head out across the bay, get your headset ready to enjoy the tunes that will keep you inspired and motivated.
Shall we begin?
