Tuesday night saw another healthy Westie turnout of 6 for the second Tour of Clydeside race hosted on the towpath at Clydebank. With nostrils full of fish and chip scent wafting from the nearby McMonagles, we set off eastbound along the canal on another delightful out and back route. For the second night running I found my pace dropping away after the initial 10 minute blast and being overtaken by a group of four. I managed to hold on behind them (well, I could just about see them in the distance)and made up a place on the return journey placing me in fourth female position. Without my contacts, again I couldn’t work out where the finish line was (although this wasn’t helped by the fact there wasn’t one, just some men gesturing vaguely at the ground) so just had to attempt to hold some pace until someone told me to stop and hope that I wasn’t overtaken in the last few painful moments. Ahead of me, Chris had finished strongly, followed by Rob (and his pal) and behind me Paula rolled in with a comic mock-sprint followed by Rhona and Pat. Of course the scheduled rest-day, won’t be such for those of us heading up for a bit of boulderbashing tomorrow. Hoping this may sharpen up the legs for the Garscube Gallop on Thursday.
