Cyprus was brilliant but not so good for the running. My daughter was up to w4 and doing great but really couldn't get motivated to run on holiday. Mind you it was hot , around 29-30 degrees and where we were there was nowhere great to run. I ran most mornings but it involved running on the street itself and then along a path round the coast which was unfortunately concrete but my knees held up thankfully. It was the only half way decent place to run so all the runners gathered there early before it got too hot. I got some claps and "Bravos!" from the elderly fishermen which made a nice change but did get me a bit worried - did I look such a desperate case that they felt I needed the encouragement?
Back in Berlin to grey skies and rain which should be our lot for the next 6 months. Have to try and get teenybopper back into her stride. I'm thinking we'll go back to w3 and see how that goes. It is certainly much easier running here which is strange considering it is a big city. Running along those Cypriot streets even in our quiet corner of north-western Cyprus felt like dicing with death. Funny how you start judging a place based on the running!
