Road running 36:03 [3] 3.97 mi (9:05 / mi)

Buggy running for the first time with B. We have a different running buggy from last time as we gave our other one away. This is aThule running buggy / cycle trailer. It’s big and unwieldy. My shoulders are going to be massive if I do this regularly. The safety strap for your wrist is designed for right handlers which is a bit irritating.

Anyway, down to holy rood park to see Loz run an XC. He was much further up the field compared to last year.

Then big rush to John Muir CP for East Area o training. Another really excellent session for the kids. The coaches are doing great work.

Today’s brunch was Honeycomb at Bruntsfield. New number 1 for me. Achingly poncey, not as friendly as some of the other lovely places (Salt Cafe, the Colony, Fountain Cafe) I didn’t want to like it but it was really very tasty indeed.

3 Friday brunches left. South of Edinburgh is done.

Bit too busy with work. If we could just get some sort of Brexit free trade agreement sorted that would help. It’s going to be utter chaos for us and pretty much any other importer under the current plans. Keep trying to work out how we can make it less of a shit show - and failing.

Trail running 1:07:35 [3] 7.3 mi (9:15 / mi)

Meggetland while Lucy was at rugby. Up to Oxgangs Tesco then took a direct path to Dreg. Up into the Pentland a bit then back through Swanston village, Cockmylane, Myreside and canal. Nice outing felt good.

We have been watching a bit of the Vuelta. The cycle races have been a key part of his parental leave - jammy sod. Does anyone know if there is orienteering in any of these amazing Spanish hills? Ray is keen to go but it’s always nice to tag on some foreign o where possible. And it would blow the kids tony minds if we went on holiday abroad that didn’t involve orienteering and we don’t want that.
