Day 26: best laid schemes

In honour of the fact is was Burns night last night (no I didn't eat any haggis) the theme of the post is being brought to you via the well know Rabbie quote:
"The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft agley."

My schemes for today most definitely 'gang agley'. Once again, social shenanigans meant that I drank too much and got to bed at stupid o'clock so today the last thing I wanted to do was go for my intended decent run (the weather was also mocking me by being lovely and sunny). I had also intended to go shopping. This activity was displaced with more laying around in bed waiting until I felt human enough to do a quick jaunt through Holyrood park (rather than around it which may have killed me)

Felt ok for the first mile then really slowed down as my body went 'ggggaaa what are you doing to me!!'

I promise to be back on the wagon for the last week (wow that actually went fast!) of Janathon

distance: 2.5 miles
time 25mins 25secs
best laid schemes gang agley-ing: all of them


  1. 'But Mousie, thou art no thy lane'. I too have said 'Och nae' and done very little this weekend.
    'Op op op op oppan Gang-angly Style'

  2. I love the quote - I'm definitely going to try remembering that one for next year. Well done for getting out and enjoying some rare sun, and hope you still managed to fit in your shopping :-)
