At 3:30 pm we'll start walking south, in the sand along the shore, towards Miramar Park, as far as we can go in 30-35 minutes. Then we'll turn around and head back to Jade Snow. There is also a paved pedestrian path next to the bike way, if you prefer that. But . . . consider the following about walking in the sand: • Walking in sand requires a greater effort than walking on a hard surface. Your muscles and tendons will work harder as your foot moves around. • Walking at a slower pace while your feet sink in sand requires more effort than walking fast or even jogging. • Walking in sand requires 2.1 to 2.7 times more energy than walking on hard surfaces. • Walking on a beach in the sand is so relaxing that most people walk further distances than they normally would on treadmills, tracks or city streets. • Instead of pounding your joints and feet on hard pavement, sand acts as a natural cushion. • One of the primary benefits of walking on a beach is that you will use 20 to 50 percent more calories than you would walking at the same pace on a hard surface. So put on your favorite walking shoes or water-friendly sandals like Teva or Keen and walk with us! After the walk, we'll join the riders from the "3rd Friday Bike Ride" at Kincaid's for "Happy Hour" between 4:45pm and 5:00pm.
