Who knew getting lost could be so much fun?

Lake in forest

I’m busy training for an alpine half marathon that is coming up in a couple of week’s. I did the 10km alpine class at the same event last year and know that the hills are going to hurt. This has led me to go further afield to reach my training goals this time – which are to basically to run a lot of very high hills!

As I set out for my weekend run I had a rough plan of where I was heading and how long I would be running for. All was going well until I took a few wrong turns in the forest on the way home and ended up a few villages away from where I live.

However, if I hadn’t got lost I wouldn’t have appreciated just how big the forest I was running in actually was and I would have missed this gorgeous Lake!

Here’s to getting lost more often! (as long as my husband is around to pick me up!)
