1st Rehab runπŸƒ

Not been out since Thursday when I had a slight pull in my hamstring still from my last" proper" run last Tuesday. Rested up over the weekend and was unable to do my Weekly Virtual 5K☹️

Decided to visit my local parkrun venue and try a gentle jog to turn my legs over for just one lap (2.5K) as the course is reasonably flat. Thought I'd keep my legs warm so donned a pair of cycling leggings and felt like Instructor57 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ In the end I wish I hadn't as temp was 21C and looked like I'd just come out the shower when I'd finishedπŸ˜‚

Anyhow all was good but made sure I did dynamic stretches before my run and a longer warm up than usual. Something to note as the weather gets colder as too easy to pick up a niggling injury. You have been warned!!πŸ‘πŸ˜

Well done for all the precautions! Seems like they have paid off 🀞

I checked the weather forecast before my early run and decided it was going to be warm even then, so donned my shorts and tee shirt πŸ˜‚

Good advice about cold weather and potential injuries.

Sounds good to me! Well done for knowing your limits and taking it steady - definitely don’t want to do anything that will put you out for weeks!

I too was caught out by the weather yesterday. Went out in leggings thinking it’ll be cooler now in the mornings but surprisingly it is still very humid and I should of worn my shorts! Looking at the forecast for the weekend I think i’ll need to get them back out!

I haven't even worn the tights yet, quite disappointed really πŸ˜‚πŸ¦΅πŸ¦΅

Misty drizzle (mizzle) here this morning. ⛆

Great to see you back. Your time off obviously paid dividends. We should all remember that!!!

Your parkrun location looks lovely.

Glad you are back out there again MontyMooDog and a very sensible shorter run, too to test out your hamstring.

You Parkrun course looks lovely btw - did you see they are talking about restarting at the end of October? It would be lovely but πŸ€”, we’ll see!🀞🏻

Good point about warming up properly for the colder weather ahead too!πŸ‘πŸ™‚

Yes looking forward to the parkrun but in light of government announcement tonight think it's all up in the air at the moment...πŸ€”
