With just under 2 miles back to the track, this shouldn't have been a problem. Except, of course, it was. All of a sudden, the back of my left knee (which has never caused me any problems in the past) started to pull so tight, I could barely get any range of movement out of it. I persevered but the more I did the tighter it became. Eventually a pain started, in the back of my knee where it felt taught, and I had no option but to stop and walk; unlike last time, walking didn't hurt but I was still about half a mile from the home base and it was a slow return back. Pete very kindly walked with me, for which I am very grateful - thanks Pete - but needless to say, I have now learnt my lesson: no running the day after a 'hard' / 'long' run, my legs just aren't up to it and I will only ruin someone elses session!!
Thankfully, I'd had the foresight to think that I may be in need of a sports massage following the half marathon yesterday, and had a session already booked for after work today.
Distance: 5 miles
Feeling: good... until I broke!
