Just returned from a lovely break away and while we were camping I took a look at the map. There was a lovely country park about 10K away so I plotted a route through back lanes and footpaths from there to the campsite. Then I asked my husband to drive and drop me there, which he did.
It was scary how far we drove and I was questioning myself if I had miscalculated the distance. My husband was concerned too. I didn't tell him I was nervous but I was thinking it looked SO far!
It was such a lovely run though. Hilly and varied and I had to do a dogleg to avoid a cow field (had a nasty experience with cows once!)
The views were great and it was brilliant to run a to route somewhere rather than just round or back and forth. I ran out of route at the end and had to run a bit of beach by the campsite at the end. I was so pleased with myself, I was buzzing and felt I could have done more. I recommend it as a thing to do
My time was 1hr 9mins, so room for improvement, but so pleased to have reached 10K. Thanks to everyone here for your advice and encouragement
