Circuits 40:00 [3]

Late so missed the Pilates.
Foot protesting strongly at the racing etc of the past few days.
Quite a few alternative exercises to protect it (none with any impact) in the hope it will settle down....

Blue Course at Holyrood Park.
A while since I ran a course in helly, jacket, hat and gloves!
Feeling deservedly jaded but slogged round and felt better for it. Glad to get a run done and the sun even came out at the end :)
Martin (presumably similarly jaded..) won in 55:52.

To the start plus some drills. Thinking the rain may be easing...

ahr:150 max:162 shoes: Saucony Kinvara 2013

Edinburgh City Race.
M40+, 4th place.

Tried hard and didn't do too much wrong, feeling a bit lacking in speed on the sections where there was a chance to open up a bit.
Jase won in 44:08, not sure I could have run that. Martin second and Rog ('fresh' from the Devil's Burdens) was third.

Hill reps behind Dunblane golf course with Rog and Jase (twisty path up through the rhodos). Long reps but recoveries a bit long too.

Toiling after yesterday and lagging the others badly

Much work to do....

Polmaise night-o, quality stuff, thanks Tessa.

Going okay despite setting off to do the short loop not the long loop from the common control at #2. Which was a shame as otherwise there was a nice path route to #3. Although as I got to #3 at the front, I don't think anyone else took it either!

Gradually dropped by Will and Rog who had the same gaffle, got caught in grot leaving #7 so they were out of sight - but then we all met up in the circle at #9 - for minutes and minutes of thrashing around in the green, maybe five of them....

When the gaffling came together at #11, Claire and Rosco appeared to join the party too. At this stage no-one knew that Ben had found all the controls just fine and was minutes ahead - in fact no-one knew that until the finish!

Dropped badly on the steep climb up to #13 and ran the next section alone. Caught by Daniel two from the end after I messed the leg up in the path network, then Claire appeared again at the penultimate.

Ben 53, Will and Rog 56, Ross 59, Daniel/me/Claire 61.
