Holiday Hurdle #3: You’ve Never Run On The Beach Before.

The softness of the sand can strain muscles and tendons because they’re stretched further than when you’re running on a firm surface.

Walk one minute between each. Limit the distance to about 400m on the first day; add an additional segment every time after that.
