Junior parkrun this morning was nuts, but a good test of the ankle. The turnout was low, and no slow ones there... so I had to run the first half km pretty fast, then the run director stopped me and said there were late starters... so I waited for them, then more started so I got a longer break... then another arrived. The last arrived was fast and ran past us before the 1k mark, at which point the ones I’d waited for decided to pull out and I tried to chase down the fast kid, which was an impossibility and fortunately he passed some that I assumed were the tail... nope, they were just running in the park and nothing to do with us... so back on the sprint intervals. Today this tailwalker finished at speed... way after the last runner. I’ve put a request in for a tail spotter next time!
So this morning I ran a mile... followed by 2k impromptu speed intervals, and my ankle was fine... so upping the mileage to 1.5 miles next time out and figure I’ll do 2 at each distance now as I get back to 3.11 and finally run a parkrun!
