Easy Blairdenon circuit, tilting at windmills. Thankfully my eyesight is better than Don Quixote's, so, no lance required. Lovely, easy, trot around the western Ochils from the Sheriffmuir Inn. TRIMP 134.5.
Happy with how my knee has survived the week of orienteering. I always used a knee support when I ran, but would still have expected some swelling up; none at all to report. So, I'll just keep using the support when training, and see how that goes. It does mean that my left vastus medialis is less well developed than my right; no doubt that's a problem in waiting.
My right hamstring started to get niggly the last couple of days - first signs of my back being unhappy and pinching that sciatic nerve - but just one brufen a day and a couple of days' rest and it is OK again, so, really, this is as good a tally of injures as I could have hoped for (apart from the head wound!)

Gorgeous evening for a run up Dumyat.
Took a while to get going but once I eventually did the legs felt great. A lovely evening, smashing views from the top. TRIMP 145.6
Touristing around Copenhagen, which is a genuinely lovely city, even on a day as wearyingly hot as this. Things went downhill as we neared the airport, and Eilidh had a huge tantrum at the hire car return place where we waited half an hour and emptied our bags multiple times over the car park in order to try and get her to wear pants (fail). Mood set in grump before we even reached the terminal, which, as it transpired, has no public seating at all, except in the cafes where you have to pay 6 trillion DKK for a cup of tea, something of a sh*tter when your SleasyJet wind-up plane is 2 hours late (surprise, surprise). Edinburgh airport, though, had the last laugh by keeping us on the plane for ten minutes before deigning to bring steps, and then taking over half an hour to offload the bags. In bed at 2:30pm Danish time. Need a holiday.
