Running (Road) 42:34 [3] 9.1 km (4:41 / km) +313m 3:59 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 #3 (Black)

Ran out to Hillend but started a bit late and got a bit lost after Mortonhall so ended up pushing hard and struggling with the porridge I'd recently eaten. Was worried that I'd arrive at the start knackered then immediately be dropped by the pace but in the end the race was delayed by 45mins.

Running (Terrain/Soft) 29:35 [4] 6.31 km (4:41 / km) +276m 3:51 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 #3 (Black)

Ran the first section of the Pentland Skyline with the leading pack of Kris, Murray, Sponge, Andy Fallas and Jethro Lennox. Good fun and nice to learn part of the route at least. Legs were hurting a bit on the descents from yesterday. Bailed out at Flotterstone just in time to meet Mick and Angela at the pub for lunch which was much more enjoyable than the following 12 miles looked to be.

Alwinton Show Fell Race - 1st.

Great little course. Went out at a pretty unpleasant pace on the flat stuff with a dude of African origin pushing things a bit. I sat in not particularly enjoying it but just planning to wait until the descent to do him in his flats. Got to the front up the steep bank as he slightly overshot the turn (I called him back) then as we started the climb I felt pretty tired so decided to slow down and back it up as the path was pretty narrow through the bracken. Let James go ahead and kept going at my own rhythm. Eventually I got back onto the back of James and looked back to see we'd properly gapped everyone which I hadn't expected. Pushed on from here since the move had accidentally been made and created a good gap back to James on the flat bit on top. Then dropped down and cruised in the flat bit to the finish with painful legs. Me and James 1-2 so we took home a lot of money and two beauty queen-style sashes for the 150th anniversary celebration. Turns out the Kenyan sprained his ankle on the descent, which is a bit harsh.

Running 27:21 [1] 5.49 km (4:59 / km) +35m 4:50 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212 (Blue/Red)

Watched some sheepdog herding which was really impressive.

Found a Craiglockhart loop that I'm quite happy with, though the beginning could be tweaked a little. Went to a new trig point.

Taking it easier today. Don't want to jump in too fast and be a bellend.

Ribs basically better now. Cold not fully gone. Face still disfigured but not affecting running (although had to be quite careful through the thick green woods yesterday to avoid smashing my nose again).
