David had proposed a 15miler today. We met at Holyrood car park at 9.30
We were five today - Mel, David, Andrew, Martin and myself.
Martin turned off early as he required less distance.
Our spiritual home.
Then past this Remembrance Day service. I wasn't sure what it was as there seemed to be some Hearts scarves as well. I was told by the security lady that it was the return of the clock which has been absent and a Hearts Remembrance Day crossover thing. She told me with a look that said "you should respect this because if it wasn't for the WW2 dead we would all be speaking German," without saying as much. "And perhaps have a better economy and higher standard of living," was what I wouldn't have replied.
Up Morrison Street, through the Meadows and past the Commie Pool to Arthur's Seat. Andrew took the clockwise option while Mel, David and I went up and round anti-clockwise. Mel and I attacked the hill and ended up doing the 2 fastest miles of the day: just over 7mins and just under 6.
I did an extra bit down Easter Rd then home - to take the total up to 20.
Great outing, well done all!
