You could simply swap your treadmill training onto the Orbitrek. Not sure exactly what you do on the treadmill, but a straight switch is probably the way to go. You won't have the same ability to monitor the pace and so forth, but if you listen to your body and alternate hard and easy according to your perception, you'll probably be close to the same kind of session.
The other thing you might do is find someone to run with - it's easier now, over the Christmas break, because people don't have work as the excuse. So perhaps you can twist an arm or two and get some company and then run in the morning.
I think you should aim for the next 2 weeks to be maintenance, not improving fitness. It's almost impossible to get fitter anyway, because your body enters "holiday" mode and it does probably need a break, mentally more than physically. So I would actually say you should try to maintain, so that as long as you don't LOSE fitness, you hit 2008 at a good speed!
