See if you can find any videos about running techniques on various surfaces. Which beach do you run on by the way

If you ever feel like giving up just slow down, take an extra day of rest then try again. Many of us have had to re-do weeks, take time, get over tweaks and injuries - you may be the same. Be kind to yourself and if a run doesn't work out, slow it down and try again or go back a run and consolidate. You can do this but give yourself some slack if and when you need it.
