Normal Service will be resumed… probably
Even so I have managed three pretty hard but worthwhile runs. On Monday I went around my favourite river-side run just outside Haddington. I was with Frank and we went at a fairly good lick for about 7 miles. Wednesday saw the annual Carfrea mill to Gifford run over the Lammermuir Hills. This involves taking a bus out to Carfrae Mill Hotel and running along a B road to the old drovers road and following it over the hills and back along quiet country roads to Gifford. En route you see some of the best views in East Lothian. Last night saw the final of the summer series at the John Muir country park, just outside Dunbar. This involves an eyeballs out circuit through the woods and along the tidal estuary and when you have done it once, you do it again. Anne and Stuart Hay do a great job in organising this event and laying on a top class bbq afterwards. I like this event and the series because they are informal and get the local clubs together. Last night there were awards to the series winners, who have completed at least four races and have the lowest number of points (for race places) over the series. So I am now in need of a little recuperation, but pleased to be back in the fray again.
