Asphalt is harder than grass, dirt, and many other surfaces, along with traffic and potholes maybe causing prob- lems. Rating- 6 Sand Barefoot running, ocean views, sea breezes all can be offered at the beach, as well as giving your legs a nice change in training. Great for building leg strength, but the uneven footing can over- stress muscles. It's best if you limit yourself to a short workout and wear your shoes. Pros- Running up and down sand dunes(where allowed) pro- vides good resistance training which will strengthen the legs. Cons- If barefoot, potential risk of blisters or cuts from the sur- face, as well as a danger of Achilles tendon injury. Rating- 4 Concrete The stuff of most sidewalks and many roads, concrete is composed primarily of cement or crushed rock. It delivers the most shock of any surface to the runner's legs. Use only when you have no other choice. Researchers found the long, beachfront, sidewalk stretch of Long Beach, CA to be 10 times as hard as asphalt and study shows if you switch to a softer surface you can cut your injury risk by 50 percent. Pros- Sidewalks keep you out of the dangerous flow of traffic and most concrete surfaces are flat, so you can avoid the crown of the road. Cons- A leg killer. The hard- ness of this surface, combined with the on and off hopping of sidewalks at intersections, can lead to injury. Pedestrians, kids on bikes, skateboards, roller blades, and dogs can become ob- stacles.
