Edinburgh City Race. Actual distance run: 10.2km. Started late to avoid the rain, although some puddles in places. Got a few leg routes wrong, the map is detailed in places and I didn't look clearly enough. However, after starting gingerly, was pleased to be able to run fairly strongly around the course - the R Achilles problem being only a dull ache that got a little worse during the race, but didn't develop into proper pain this time. It's definitely on the mend. I think I can start to do careful runs of up to around 50 minutes now, maybe up to an hour (i.e. to work) after a week or so.

Enjoyed the course, some great legs, even though the design was quite out-and-back so much of the area was visited twice (back-to-back map), there were some good approaches from unusual angles - particularly one via the Scottish Parliament - and of course that meant we could do Dumbiedykes (the "Barbican" of Edinburgh) twice.

Taking it easy tomorrow though, no sense aggravating it more, at this stage. Likely will no-show or just do the first few controls.
