Sunday Mar 7 #

2 PM

Trail running 51:16 [3] 5.6 mi (9:09 / mi)

Up to KB for the KB Dash for the HBT v Carnethy shenanigans. Not much Dashing was done. My legs were dead and I had the ever cumbersome buggy. Strava tells me that this run was only 2 secs slower than last time I ran it, my fastest time for the segment. Must do it again with fresh legs and no buggy to see how much I can improve by. Still not going to get near my KB PB of sub 25. Home as a warm down.

Off-road running 2:06:00 [3] 11.3 mi (11:09 / mi)

Parked at Dreg, ran to Allermuir up an unbelievablely steep trod that we had seen last weekend when orienteering. Then my favourite muddy path around the side of Castlelaw to the reservoir, turned right to Black Hill. A couple of hundred metres after the track to Logan cottage there’s a gap in the wall. This takes you into a field which leads up to the Black Hill track, a wonderfully grassy track of the perfect gradient to keep running nicely to the top.

I then came back via Bells Hill and Harbour Hill to Capelaw and back to Dreg. A really fun loop. Felt good for once.

9 PM

Road running 34:57 [3] 4.24 mi (8:15 / mi)

Bertie has started nursery! Yay! Life becomes much easier as we now only have homeschooling and work to worry about. He was in Wednesday and Thursday this week so I had planned to head for a run this afternoon but we missed him too much so picked him up early instead.

Late night post dinner run around AA and the meadows. Nice night for it.

Wednesday Mar 3 #

Trail running 28:00 [3] 3.2 mi (8:45 / mi)

Jog there and back. With Loz so not as slow as I would have liked.

Tempo run 36:37 [3] 2.72 mi (13:28 / mi)

Arthur’s Seat handicap

Nice day for it, and after hauling myself up to the top of the crags my legs started to feel good for once. Still a long way off my best alas, but I am nailing the route slightly better each time.

Monday Mar 1 #

2 PM

Trail running 42:23 [3] 4.09 mi (10:22 / mi)

Happy St David’s Day

Run with Loz around the meadows, then up the crags, and a crazy kamikaze route back that is never done before and wasn’t trainers-suitable. I need to stop running with him - he kills me these days. Home and ate a load of Welsh cakes.
