First run after a weeks rest

The day after my 10K race my legs burned! Given that the distance wasn’t particularly long compared to my recent running, I think the 200m sprint at the end was to blame. My thigh injury was still niggling though, so I decided to have another week of rowing and cycling at the gym in the hope of finally getting 100% fixed. It definitely felt better as the week progressed and by Friday it was completely normal most of the time. Therefore I decided to give it a go today and see how I got on. At the two mile point where I could have cut back the leg felt good so I carried on and ended up heading down to Finsbury Park and back. By the end of the run there was a bit of an ache but no pain like I had before which I’m hoping is a good sign. A day of total rest tomorrow, and hopefully it’ll be feeling good enough to get back to proper training next week.
