Well into the second week of the holiday now, and moved from the Isle of Mull to the north east highlands. Drove a bit up and down the Cromarty Firth and Moray Firth until we settled for a smallish forest campsite in Nairn. Great site, very calm and secure for the kids. Once again, we've hit the jackpot with the weather.
There's an added bonus with this site - it's got forestry trails. It means I can do part of my runs through the pine forest - the smell running through it in the morning is clean and fresh. I've managed 4 runs so far on holiday: a 6 miler, 8 miler and two 10 milers. Hopefully one more before heading home on Sunday. All but one have included off-road trails, which are more enjoyable and definitely suit me best, though they have all felt a little like running through treacle at times - hopefully just holiday lard!
Training proper starts from Monday, which gives me 9 weeks good training, with 2 weeks to taper before the race. I need to hit the hill sessions hard, and get my long runs in on trails.
