We’re staying at WoWo Campsite this weekend and I’ve managed to escape for a hour to go for a run in the countryside by myself. I love running but have not been for ages, and once you get out of the habit it can be quite hard to get back into it. Having a new place to run in always motivates me to want to tie up my running shoelaces and get out there, and with the weather being so perfect right now I set out to explore the fields and lanes around the campsite.
I’m sure there are hundreds of walks around the region. Sussex and the South Downs looks so pretty. I don’t know it well at all, The North Downs are much nearer to me. WoWo does have a list of walks available but I just took the nearest footpath and my phone for orientation and set off.
I had to scramble over an electric fence (wasn’t going to test if it was on or not!) and jog through some fields of sheep including some very curious black lambs who came to say hello to me. Through a small piece of woodland and up a track to a country lane before curving back round up and around onto another footpath back to the campsite.
Running obviously helps with physical fitness but it’s the mental aspect that really helps me. Running in the countryside must give you a double whammy then, as you get the benefits of being outdoors as well as the endorphins from the run itself.
