It was really nice to be back running parkrun, if gently. I took some scheduled walk breaks and didn’t bomb it down the downhill at the end (I actually walked some of the steeper sections of the finish straight as I was a bit nervous about doing more damage!). Running outside is quite a bit tougher on the legs than the treadmill, especially a hilly parkrun course like Jesmond Dene, but it’s all helping to pinpoint the areas I need to strengthen and protect. I went home and did my full rehab strength training session, which I normally skip after parkrun.
Same again next week I hope.
