Was a little unmotivated to run today, especially after I missed yesterday, and I thought the best way to handle that was to go straight for the jugular and do a two hour job. As always the time goes real slow when you're solo but it wasn't too bad. I managed to hit all the rugby traffic heading by Murrayfield, which threw me off and left me pretty disoriented.
I wanted to hit the union canal and head back but I missed it because I didn't really know what to expect. I ended up running along Water of Leith for a while and it was really nice, but I was getting the feeling that I was lost. It was just too forested. Luckily I ended up on the wrong side of the river and was forced to climb the hill to the road. Who knows how far I would have gone looking for the union canal.
Lo and behold, all the roads are named after Bonaly and there's a sign pointing me to the Pentlands. Obviously, in a flash of brilliance, I decided that the best course of action was to go up that road. I crossed the carriageway pretty soon after that and realized that I should probably turn around and head back. I guessed my way through roads after that, jumping a pesky fence along the way because I didn't want admit defeat and back out of the road I'd entered.
Spent most of the run lost, would recommend again.
