Arrived in Fuerteventura 5 days ago. Lovely and warm with clear blue skies! So nice to be away from the cold in England. The facilities up at Play Itas are fantastic - outdoor 50m pool, nice gym, some great marked out running trails...!

Out here for almost 11 weeks! I feel so lucky. Although I had to say goodbye to Dan yesterday and won't see him now until he comes out again in 6 weeks time.

A much needed rest after the marathon. Even if I'd wanted to run I couldn't. It was painful enough walking let alone running for most of the week. 2 days after the race and I had tickets to a rock concert with my sister! Really good night but not the same when you can hardly move!! A good Christmas and light training but freezing cold which I really can't deal with. Lots of cycling on the turbo - boring! as too icy to go outside. Bring on the 12th of Jan!!!
