My legs

Saturday, March 05, 2011

So far this week I have ran nearly 12 miles -- in three days. Typically I log about eight miles a week, and right now my thighs are tight and achy. My muscles hurt so bad last night I had trouble falling asleep.

I had intended to go to the gym this morning. (There's no child care on Sunday.) But my body is not going to cooperate.

It's frustrating because I had planned a light three miler today. If I completed the run, I would have logged about 15 miles this week. I have not done that in about nine years.

    remember rest days between running- it is okay to have a rest day because of fatigue..
    Congratulations on your mileage.. emoticon

    Try taking a hot bath with epsom salts, the magnesium will help your overworked muscles. Also, unless you have health issues you can try taking 2 asprin every 4 hours to reduce the inflamation so you'll feel better.
