3C, cold, sunny. A 4 mile trail run at Fox House. Got up early to drive into Derbyshire to get some trail experience. I had picked out a route from Fox House, along Burbage Edge to Ringinglow Road, returning on a trail path a bit lower down. 

After a bit of climbing I was rewarded with some fantastic views.

You can see the return path down below in the photo. As I went along the lower path I met a flock of sheep. Rather than scattering left and right they ran along the path for around a quarter of a mile! Was surprised how fast they can run 🙂

I enjoyed the change of scenery and the stop/start nature of trail running, pausing to enjoy the views. Felt I could have gone much further. Drank 200ml water and had a gel at the start and finish.
