Hi lads: Wanted to make a suggestion to those who hit the tarmac regularly. Try beach running. I had my first go at it earlier on. Absolutely killed my knees and feet and ended up doing a 3 mile (which ususally takes me around 20 minutes) in a rather horrid 40 minutes!! What benefits are there to beach running and should I include it in my fitness routine?~ Best wishes The Creature of the Night.
