I woke up following yesterdays half marathon feeling a bit tender in my Sartorius (upper inner thigh) and had a slight twinge in my left ankle but felt ok otherwise.
I was a bit stiff getting around but the advice of some friends and reading up on this has helped.
I had an easy start to the day (booked the day off) and after breakfast headed out for a 10 – 15 minute run.
Don’t worry I am not mad – this wasn’t any strenuous – it was simply a way to ensure that the muscles I used yesterday got some heat and blood pumping back into then. I felt ok with this leisurely jog but I was sweating like a loon when I got back.
Afterwards I had a soak in a cool bath before getting on with the rest of my day.
This will be the last run with my current Garmin Forerunner 210 as it has been playing up for a while (and I only got it in June). Basically the damn thing refuses to switch off. It takes several attempts before it manages to successfully.
I wrote to Garmin and there must be a known error as there was no quibble (after confirming my watch was less than a year old) and today they have sent me details to send my watch back for a new device to be sent to me.
At least it held up for yesterday’s race around the Royal Parks 🙂
