Starting Saturday, Jan. 11 SoccerViza Football Club will be commencing its beach runs at Sherwood Island in Westport, CT.
With record breaking warm weather in Connecticut to what usually is a snowy winter, questions about whether beach runs are mandatory, and their necessity arise.
Yes, it’s still technically ‘cold’, but tolerable.
According to the American Heart Association, working out in the cold has plenty of health benefits. Winter exercise boosts immunity during cold and flu season. In the cold, your body can also regulate its temperature a little better. This means you can often exercise farther or longer; therefore, you can potentially burn even more calories, according to AHA.
