As a result my long runs were reduced to 10 miles and my speed sessions (1 minute reps with 1 minute recovery) were carried out on the beach.
In total 58 miles over the two weeks.
Those of you who have been to Corfu will know that there are no big mountains on the island, With the tallest being Mount Pantokrator, which stands at around 1000m. The north of the island, though, is quite rugged and provides plenty of opportunity to get in some hilly runs.
I have written in previous posts about being chased by dogs whilst in foreign climes and this trip proved to be no exception. However, on this occasion, the 'dog experience' was probably my own fault as I managed to miss the path I had been following and ended up running through some body's Olive Groves and along paths with 'no entry' and 'private road' signs.
Getting out early morning meant that I missed most of the heat of the day. However, this Sunday's 10 miler from Ag. Stefanos through Arillas and up to Afionas and back proved to be particularly warm. So much so that pushing up the last hill out of Arillas, I would swear that even my eye-balls were sweating.
