Hilly goodness on the way back from Felix's. Lovely run feat. big rocks, sheep, wind, a bit of cheeky forest nav, an Olav impersonation, wind, terraces, and saying hi to Robbie Simpson. Can finally put a face to the name.

Tap O'Noth Hill Race

Fat 4k climb and back down. Pack of six formed early on with me and a yellow shirt guy chilling right behind them. Off the road and onto the hill, and things started breaking up a lot. Yellow shirt (Kyle Greig) pushed up once the pack was breaking and stuck with Ali up front for the rest of the way up. I spent most of the time alone, with Ali and Kyle close in sight but I could tell it wasn't worth catching so I put my effort into solidifying third place. Black shirt behind me (Clyde) was breathing quite loudly so I kept thinking he was making up ground and getting closer but nope, breathing was just getting louder with the gap staying the same. Hit the top and Ali was coming back the other way, was quite happy with being so close behind. Put effort into trying to descend properly, but couldn't catch an eye of the boys ahead of me. Thought I descended pretty well, but I think I got distracted a little bit and there was a small section where I wasn't pushing the downhill. Also am still bad at descending so the 15 or so second lead I'd built on the way up was reduced to a solid 0 seconds. Things flattened out, a mild grassy climb, then a kilometer section on the road to the finish. Was dying and convinced this guy was gonna burn me up since my flat speed isn't very good, but he just stuck to my tail and wasn't passing me. Final stretch, upped the speed and actually felt pretty good, but then we had a turn onto a track that we didn't have in the way out and I didn't know how much extra this bit was gonna be and I died a little bit on the inside. Glanced at my watch, thought I had another 700m left (was half of that), and my legs were not happy with how early I kicked to try to keep ahead of Clyde. The track was pretty dodgy footing so I pulled away a bit, but then we hit more road and I could feel him coming up behind. Kicked another gear and was concerned over the distance left, but turned a corner and the finish was right there. Third place, exhausted, loads of fun, good thing I was decently quick at the end because if Clyde had passed me I think I would have let him go and settled for fourth, would have been £5 poorer.

Nice on the Seat with Max and Ali. Got a nosebleed just past half an hour so I stopped and tried using leaves to stem the tide. Once I thought I could run without becoming a bloody mess I kept going. Spotted the others in the distance on a climb and was overcome with great sadness.

Sprintelope in Kirkliston, very nice map. Was going well but was dying for a shit and there's a pain threshold I wasn't able to cross so I stopped and waddled to the finish. Got through the interesting part of the map so not too bothered. Bit of a shame not getting a longer run in, ah well, will rest up tonight and go again tomorrow.
