Excellent to see Scottish Orienteering have drafted an orienteering calendar for this year. Really good idea to have a kids SOL. Great to have some hope, and who doesn’t love a trip to Craig A’Barnes (Scottish camps, June). Best get training in the hope that the events go ahead.
3 PM

Road running 51:31 [3] 6.21 mi (8:18 / mi)

Run with WHB. I was surprisingly struggling. I think he has been training for a change in his army job. I felt v unfit but the chat was good.

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!

Had Lucy and Bertie and wanted to go running so a buggy run with Lucy beside. Down to Portobello, bribing Lucy with an ice cream. Lovely sunny day, made for a springtime SOL.

Did a walk / jog with Lucy (running) and the buggy to friends at Braids Farm Road. 5 miles probably. Dropping off some peanut butter brownies. Hit a v muddy path in the hermitage which was fun. Good to leave the house for the first time in days. Work stress has been unbearable of late.
