Looking forward to staying at Alfagar Apartments fortnight in August. The complex doesn’t appear to have a daytime sports programme or a gym , which doesn’t worry me as I’d rather get out in the fresh air & enjoy a run to earn my dinner & evening drinks anyway – it looks beautiful round there.
Is there a good 5/6km route, late afternoon 5-6pm when it’s a bit cooler, directly from the apartments? I was thinking instead of heading out left towards Santa Eualia & the town, I’d turn right and run along the main road towards the Intermarche at Olhos De Agua and either continue as it bends left inland or go down Rua Torre da Medronheira , towards the coast, then run back as it’s a dead end.
Is it very hilly? Safe trafficwise? Okay to run alone? Is there a better, greener route? Not a fan of beach running, prefer firmer surface. I’ll be doing those 150 steps down to the beach a few times daily so probably want to avoid those in case I wear them out !!!
