Eager to get at least one run in during my week away, I got up early on my first morning there and went for a run with my brother-in-law (Craig) and nephew (Dom). We set off at 7.30am and headed towards the coast. Craig has been running a lot longer than me so he kept doubling back and doing some interval training in order for him to do more miles without losing Dom and I.
We ran along to the harbour and saw some people doing some fantastic sand sculptures. I was so busy watching one of them that I almost ran down a ramp onto the sand instead of keeping to the path!
I was struggling a little bit (not sure exactly why, it wasn't hot, but I think it might have been due to running in a new place), so I was glad when we turned round to head back towards the hotel. On the return, both Dom and I walked parts of it (Dom's new trainers were hurting his feet, and my legs were sore). We all, also stopped to take in some of the scenery.
|Taking in the view, thank you Dom for taking the picture!|
I was pleased when I got back to the hotel (4.8km run) and enjoyed a relaxing day with the family.
We walked back to the harbour in the afternoon to show everyone else the sand sculptures.

I was a little disappointed with the efforts of both of my holiday runs, however I am super impressed and proud of myself for 1) taking my trainers on holiday, and 2) getting up at 7am on holiday to go for a run (Twice!) I wanted to do a third run but decided taking part in the karaoke would be more entertaining than setting my alarm on holiday for a third time!
