Inbound and outbound trip interrail week-end trips

I have a question concerning the Inboung/outbound trip. I actually live in France and I’m thinking of buying the 3 month pass. But I do not really understand the inbound/outbound thing. For example if I buy the pass it would be to do extended week-ends in the surrounding countries for example 
France/Spain then Spain France in april for 4 days

France Belgium /Belgium France in may 5 days

France Germany / Germany France june 6 days

France UK/UK France june 4 days

as there are direct lines that to these trips (Thalys Paris Amsterdam for example or Paris Bruxelles) is that considered as an Inbound/ outbound travel ? By doing this would I be violating the interrail rules ?

thank you for your answer

you can only use the interrail ticket one time for an inbound and one time for an outbound trip. So with your Spain trip in April this free in-/outbound trips would be used already. For the other trips you would have to buy a ticket from France to the border station (mostly would be first station after crossing from France). So this would be NOT included in your Interrail pass.
