I wasn’t sure about it, but I decided to try a run this morning. 5K or 5 miles was the question. It was a glorious morning, so bright, blue sky and everything looking so green and lush – but it was freezing. I was glad I had put on a base layer, but gloves wouldn’t have come a miss. In the end I plodded slowly for five miles. I could feel every step – not in a painful way – more of an ache in my legs, probably due to the bruising. My hip seemed fine. I did step carefully though when on uneven surfaces!
It was then a quick change and off to see BB’s rugby – another sevens tournament. They won one game, lost another by one try and lost the third game. BB was a bit frustrated at his team – but that soon passed! TT and I were frozen. Although it was a really sunny morning, the wind was bitterly cold. I don’t think I really warmed up till early evening.
After lunch, TT and I did a bit of shopping. Later the boys were going to church in Dunbar, so I joined them so I could go for a wee walk to stretch my legs and more importantly my hip. The wind had dropped and it was much more pleasant than earlier. I walked along by the harbour and the east beach.
It was then home for chicken curry which I had prepared earlier and the last two episodes of Line of Duty – series 4. We can start on series five now!
The kittiwakes who nest in the ruins of Dunbar Castle are very noisy. The eider ducks were all hunkered down (extra).
