As I watched the 7 o’clockers head off for a “sort of” 7 hills recce I thought how nice it was to be looking forward to a nice jog at 7:30 to let my inJURAed legs and knees recover.
With 2 new recruits we set off on a Hermitage oscillation run, a third recruit caught us on observatory road and 9 of us headed for the filled in quarry. We crossed the Hermitage a couple of times in order to get more climb. The target was the garage on Comiston Road where we had our equivalent of the 7 hills – the 7 Lollies. Digby didn’t lose 2 stones by eating lollies though.
We ran back criss crossing the Hermitage again with a visit to Blackford summit before returning to KB. 5 miles in 1:18 on a lovely night. Just what I was needing.
