For somebody who doesn't like running up and over hills, they seem to be featuring as a sort of "theme" to this weeks training..
Last night's club run was a merry jaunt up through Spott, towards Burnhead and Halls. Followed by a climb up over and round Watch Law.
A slightly longer club run than usual, but good fun - and also one of the best evenings weather we've had for a while.
And today? Well, a wee climb up and around the wind farm was the order of the day. Strange today though. A run that usually supplies complete solitude was today altered by about six transit vans scooting around. All with their windows rolled down and all playing different variations of "Radio-Feck-Wit" at full volume.
I don't know if it's preventative maintenance, or what, but they appear to be painting most of the electricity pylons in our part of the Lammermuirs. I think, and hope, it's just an undercoat but it's strange to see these giant structures painted yellow.
It's been a long week this week already (58 miles since Saturday).
