I haven't run since last Parkrun because my calves have been tight. I decided a complete weeks rest was the best thing to do along with stretching and using a foam roller.
As I shared with you all on Thursday I found out via email that I was the Barking Parkrunner of the month. I was given a voucher for a free pair of trainers from Sweatshop before today's Parkrun and it was nice to be cheered by everyone!
I wasn't sure how the run would go today because my left calf is still a little tight and there was heavy rain off and on today. I decided to wear my running jacket because I had thought I would be running slowly today. However as soon as we started to run the rain stopped and it warmed up a bit so I overheated fairly quickly. I decided to keep the jacket on because I wasn't going for a really fast time. Also as soon as I warmed up my calf wasn't painful so I was able to run without any pain for the first time in about 2 weeks. I didn't push too hard so I was fairly happy with finishing in 24:08.
I might go for another run tomorrow but I will see how I feel in the morning. Happy running all and here is a link to my run:
