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 πŸ™ƒ 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 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Completely lost again πŸ™„ 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 πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • 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 πŸ˜‚

  • See, I told you to take the wool!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Lovely run report, sounded like a 'bear hunt'! Sounds like you're having fun, enjoy πŸ™‹πŸΌ

  • I thought you were supposed to be relaxing on your hols

  • Fazzical is very relaxed πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ™„

  • Typical make him suffer when you get home

  • But of course πŸ˜‚ 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 πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

  • I just had to have a sneaky peak! 6:45 am. I'm just back from my first run! Will post report later. β˜€οΈπŸ˜Ž

  • All these hollibobbing reports... I'm itching to get away now but still have 2 weeks to wait 😩 Lordy lookatthatsky! What a beautiful place to run. 45 minutes? You trooper! Maybe you should take a bag of breadcrumbs on the next one ;)

  • Back home again now 😞 But I do have a new 4 legged running pal - will be posting piccies soon πŸ˜€ I will have to train him to be a homing dog too but deffo no breadcrumbs he would eat them. πŸ˜‚

  • 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?!
