Was going to run the Craigmillar FWTN but went for a walk with some friends in the afternoon to the play park there, and we decided it was rough enough to feel uneasy being there mid afternoon, so I sure as heck didn’t want to go back by myself in the dark that night to run a night o.

I think I’ll introduce a “Trainspotting” rule. If the area has / could be used as a location for Trainspotting, then perhaps I’ll opt out if orienteering there.

And even funnier, I found out after I had chickened out that a friend started the course and then wimped when they got abuse from kids hiding in the forest.

Trail running 53:55 [3] 5.82 mi (9:16 / mi)

Nice sunny afternoon. Out with the cumbersome running buggy. Up through Pollock, down the innocent railway (saw some runners shin the wall to get in Duddingston Loch nature reserve. Quite jealous - it looks interesting over there). Then up MFD. Had to do the steps in the end as the slope was too muddy. It was some haul! One of us was finding the steps very funny. It was not me. Then otter-spotting (not there) down Queens Drive and home. I could do with getting some sleep sometime. Didn’t get much last night due to B and a really sore back. I can’t see it being less sore tonight!
