Mussy 10K spectate and Gullane Swim

I'm feeling much better. Saw the cardiologist guy yesterday and his words to me were "I think we can fix you". It looks like the next thing is cardiac ablation - burning out the freaky random electrics that are stopping my heart from beating properly, in the meantime more and meaner drugs. Its probably too soon for the new drugs to have taken effect but I felt a lot better today than I have all week. The Musselburgh 10K was on and I cycled along, a bit shy of seeing my fellow runners, but I'm glad I did. So many people I really like. It seems like the more people know what's going on with me the easier it is to accept somehow. I'm getting used to it. I wondered what I'd be like after cycling back to the flat in Edinburgh - and I was a bit tired but alright, so we went to Gullane for a swim, since who knows how many other days of summer we'll get this year?

I don't think we were that impressive swimming at Gullane, more splash than dash, but it was good to get in the sea, good to get out again and good to get hot chocolate from the Gullane Superfry afterwards. Plus I got a tax rebate today. Tremendous.

Great seeing you Mary! Glad you had a good swim. I went to the pub. Which was good too. Hopefully see you next week at some point.

Great to see you too MG. Look after your knee and I'll be along some time next week to take photos or maybe ring a cowbell at the uphill time trial.
