I was aware of this, same with grass, I do not know if the figure for grass is the same, but i def know it does burn more calories
that makes sense since it does seem harder to run on sand. Great fact thanks.
That makes sense I guess, it is a lot harder to walk/run on such a soft surface!
yep cos it's harder to run and you have to put more effort in runnin or not?
It always felt like more work :/
hmm. Makes sense, but I never would have thought it!
because the sand is an unstable, shifting surface
I did know that - it's also not as hard on your joints, because the sand's give when you step on it (the same reason it burns more calories, you have to work a bit harder to push through it) is easier on your knees.
Pity I live an hour away from the beach.
I knew that one :3 Used to do a lot of running on the beach.. I miss it :)
And what if there is no sand in my town ? :D
I heard that..running on hard surface is murder on your joints.
running on sand is so difficult!
Thought i commented?
If only I lived near a beach =(
huh, good to know
Yep but this is so exausting :s
cool im just gonna cover everything with sand, get jacked legs
Just another reason to hate the beach. Can't even walk peacefully.
