Is there any benefits to running on sand, or any other terrain? I’ve read for injury prevention when running it can be beneficial to run on some softer surfaces than concrete pavement.
I’ve been including some beach/trail in my runs, because it’s more enjoyable mainly, but would be interested to see if there’s any benefits or negatives to doing so.
I tend to run along the wettest sand so it’s a bit more packed. There’s a very slight camber, but I always try and do out and back to account for that so each leg has had the camber.
What are your experiences running on other terrain?
