Should have taken the ball of wool with me 😎

I set off in my second holiday run this morning before breakfast. Musical accompaniment this time as I had sussed out that if I had turned left instead of right last time I would have found myself on a 20 minute circular woodland walk - at least that's what the sign said 🙃 That was the only sign I saw for the route. I nearly ended up on the equine cross country course again but thought b"@@er that! It was a beautiful run through the woods and the hilly terrain gave me a challenge I don't find at home in Essex but I blatantly have no sense of direction when confronted by trees 😂😂. Completely lost again 🙄 I climbed over fallen trees to reach a road after spotting a car ahead. Instead of a circuit I had managed to come out on the other side of the woods 😀 I was out for over an hour ran for 45 minutes of that and only stopped because I had no idea how far I needed to walk back. This is a new brave me and it was fun. Maybe I should take a phone with me though 😎😎

Nice view didn't find any dinosaurs in there did you as it looks a set from Jurrassic Park what with all them ferns and various bits of flora. Still looks like a nice day for it even with the getting lost I take it Dave was not riding shotgun but stayed it the tin tent

I probably scared the dinosaurs away with my less than gentle footfall. 😂😂

Maybe... Sounds (and looks) great. Where are you on your holibobs (as my friend says)

We are in the South Downs in Sussex. We will be back next year so I can get lost all over again 😂

Fazzical is very relaxed 😀 He's putting off his next run till we get home. We had a date for his first 20 minute outing while we were here. He's stood me up 🙄

Typical make him suffer when you get home

But of course 😂 I have to cut him a bit of slack though. We will be collecting a new 4 legged running partner when we get home. He's terrified as that will make dog number 3 👏🏼👏🏼

That would tempt me out for a run. Looks fab. Enjoy your adventures. I have no sense of direction, just hopeless so I really need to pay attention when I run in a new spot.

WOW that sounds like great fun, not sure I could escape from Hubby for that though, but if it wasn't cycle friendly I'd could be there?!
