Improve your running form - run with your eyes closed!
What does it fee like?
Strange, first of all. But it makes sense after a bit.
Try and find out for yourself. I was more conscious of my body taking strides and knew exactly how my feet were falling onto the sand.
I stopped after a minute and looked back. I could see my footprints in the sand and my path was far from straight. I tried again but paid more attention to running with a bit more "precision"
After another minute or so I again stopped, looked back. This time I could see I had run in a straight line. It's a good way of examining for yourself something about your running form, how in-tune you are with your body.
Yes, try it for yourself but pick the right place! For me it was amazing to do this and concentrate on my running form. If you can, look behind you to see if you have run in a straight or curved line.
