I like the idea of “listening to your body” but what happens if it is much better but still a sensation, not of pain, but of stiffness. Does one completely idle? Run hard until stiffness sets in? Try another run and see? Hmmm.
Wait, going downhill I slowed up and tried for fluidity and no braking as I understood that motion was aggravating to a hamstring and when I noticed it tightening I slowed up more and then on the way in. Still, I am left with something residual. Quick eBike ride to coffee shop and off to run group. It will involve hills and there is no reason to set the pace, can run with the 2nd lead pack as a compromise 🙂
Fun. Light and Easy.
