As I had absolutely nothing to do I went for a run. At starting I was undecided where to go but thought of Gala Water. However as it looked rather threatening [?] I turned off at Boleside [?] + went via Wooplaw to Stow. I had only been this road once before + then the opposite way. There was one bit awfully cut up by wood cutting a mile beyond Wooplaw. It is a very steep descent to Stow. Crossed to the old road at Stow and went up to Heriot. Took my lunch near Fountainhall. I merely had bannock, some choc + a juicy pear a product of the “Magic Cave”. From Heriot on to Innerleithen. Very stiff ride against a S.W. for the last 2 miles to the watershed. Got home before 6 = 49.55 miles.
From the “Magic Cave” = ? ?, 8 eggs a square of honey
