Nice longish steady run around the quay, around the harbour to Shore Road, along the prom towards B'mouth, up Branksome Chine and then it went wrong.
I had a route in mind that I had memorised from the map before I set off. But I clearly didn't, and went merrily trotting up a road admiring all the massive houses of Canford Cliffs and Branksome Park thinking I was heading west, then turned right then ended up at a big crossroads. I recognised the junction but was convinced I was heading the opposite direction. The signs to Poole were telling me to go back where I'd just come from though, so totally disorientated in the dark, I turned around and then bumbled my way back in vaguely the right direction until I came out at Parkstone Station.
Back via Civic Centre, Poole Park, and the Quay again.
I must admit I wasn't feeling on top form tonight. Legs are sore and heavy from last night's mile reps and I didn't feel at all light and bouncy on my feet despite my best efforts with my barefoot form.
