Portugal! Relaxation, sun, sea and a little training thrown in!


This is a little snap of my training route while on holidays. Not bad! I reckon beach running has serious benefits and I tested out barefoot running, soft sand running, cliff running and a little road running too. It was interesting to mix it up on so many different terrains. I trained morning and evening to avoid the heat, although most sessions were still at 24 degrees or so. I did some heavy sessions and some intervals mainly working on my speed. It was great to see so many others using the beach for runs too.
I will update my garmin stats for the trip tomorrow. And hope to add a few more photos.  A few busy days ahead with work, the race in Leenane Saturday and a cup semi final in football Sunday to top it all off!
