It was good to get up on the Braes again today. I’m still waiting for my Disclosure Scotland check to come back before I can start my 2 days with West Dunbartonshire. Hopefully I’ll be able to start next week or the week after. Yesterday I had a phone call from Renfrewshire Council offering me 2 days supply teaching but then when they looked more closely they realised I’ve not taught for over 10years and so have suggested I do a 2 week refresher course at Jordanhill. I’m not quite sure if I’ll do it as once I start the 2 days I’m hoping that will lead into a full time post. While I was running I had a phone call from SwimTime offering some more swimming lessons and then when I returned home they rang again and asked could I cover an hour tonight at a pool in Cumbernauld at 5pm. So once I’ve posted this I’ll be on my bike and off to Cumbernauld.

Anyway back to the run – nothing too much to report. I ran steady and felt good. During the first lap I was thinking about various things and the time flew by but the second lap felt a bit harder work and I was quite glad to get home in the end. I took one tumble as well which didn’t do my foot any favours.

Here is a picture of the route and if you click on the picture and click on the green arrow you can follow the route I took – interactive fun!!

    … and I quite like that everytrail tool. Do you think the total climb is accurate?
