I got my results back for yesterdays parkrun in Richmond Park and I wasn't too bad - 27'52. Only 24 seconds slower than last week so I'm amazed really, cos I felt so grim the entire way around the course!
Being very new to parkrun, I've encountered a conundrum. After my usual solo runs, I have a 5 minute warm down walk followed by a damned good stretch when I get home. After each of the two parkruns I've done, I am so elated to have crossed the finishing line that all I do is join the queue for the scanning person. Once scanned I do a few stretches, but not proper ones and then walk back to my scooter to ride home. Essentially my whole "post run routine" is different and as a result I have a bloomin' tight calf!
I know Aftabs has had this recently, so I've foam rollered it and ice packed it and will now take a bit of rest to see how it goes.
Has anyone else experienced this at all? Not a tight calf, but the excitement of parkrun, making you forget to do a proper post run routine?
Let me know. Answers on a postcard please. Thank you!!
