I used to do a little hill training last year but have since moved to the coast, does anyone else train "on the beach" as opposed to hill work?

It's much harder. Fantastic for leg turnover, though.

The South coast does have hills, though, you know. Just not Northern hills.

Not South coast. Just coast. Sorry. Must learn to read.

I live on the Lincolnshire coast. No hills here. However there are some lovely hilly runs starting just three miles inland in the Wolds.

Still can't seem to find any training programmes for sand running, tried dry sand what a killer!

Sand is horrible! Give me a hill any day, although sandy hills are the worst!!

I've tried it. All depends on the type of sand. Barefoot through the surf :-) :-) :-) Deep dry sand :-o :-o :-o

I did a mixed terrain race (50/50 sand and tarmac) a few weeks ago. Loved the beach part. Strangely I was the only one who liked the sand that I spoke to.

There is no surface which mashes the calves up worse than sand. Which means it has to be good, right?

Why were you speaking to the sand RS?

Got something to say?
