Mitt Smultronstallet is definitely Turnhouse. Felt the need for a long solo one this morning, so out over the usual Skyline ridge from Flotterstone after a decent breakfast at Oleg's. Very isolated in the clag today, and unfortunately only packed a t-shirt so had to accept that my lower arms would be numb for the next two hours. Feeling quite good aside from that though but as I was in recovery shoes I avoided the marshes at Hare and Black and bypassed them suitably. Still keen for some hills though so cut up Bell's a new way, followed by usual Harbour and Capelaw at a bit of an extra effort to burn the fat before heading back along a very frustratingly long path (aiming for ~2:15). Strides on the way back, still feeling really quite good. Don't want this shape to end, with an almost certain overuse injury around the corner. Never thought I could get to a stage where I'd enjoy Pentlands this much.
