We're at Binz on the German island of Ruegen in the Baltic. It has been a blessed escape from Berlin with temperatures of 33 and 34 degrees. Ugh. Here the sea breeze knocks the temperatures back where I like them in the 20s and the sea is cold, as you'd expect but if you've swum in UK summers, you are hardy enough to get in there and enjoy it.
This is the sea promenade. Our hotel is to the left at the end of the beach and the promenade continues to the right past the town becoming forest edged on one side, endless white sand and pale blue sea on the other. Beautiful, give me the seaside over a city anytime but especially for running.
Normally I run 3x week but here I'm running 6x because it is too fab not to. Probably why my eyes are shut in the photo - knackered!
