Ha ha....... why do we always have to make it worse for ourselves? Why cant we ever be happy with achieving SOMETHING. Cant see me doing a tri (hate swimming) but the bike sounds very attractive .......... Dont give me ideas! Still need to sort my stupid sore muscles out ha ha ...... walking sticks for me I think!
Thanks everyone you are all really helpful. Okay, so I guess it will always hurt to a certain extent - in a nice way hopefully. I think I have been over training a bit so I'm going back go basics a bit so I don't lose confidence. Definitely won't be giving up though and will make use of all your helpful comments
Well that's quite interesting actually. I am not in your league for mileage yet (10 miles is my weekend long run) but I have been querying about whether the soreness from running ever goes with seasoned runners. I love my running but always seem to suffer with soreness even though I am soooo good at warming up and cooling down. I go by the book! I will pinch your idea of having a sports massage I think to see if that helps. Just maybe I went from 6-7 miles to 10 miles too quickly.
It all makes sense when someone else gives advice! Sometimes you can't see the wood for the trees can you? All very helpful points thank you. Much appreciated!!!! ordered a foam roller recently so nows maybe a good time to make use of the big blue thing staring at me in the corner
Well it's pretty continuous. I follow a plan for half marathon so I now have long run at weekends - 10 miles, and shorter ones in the week with 2 days rest. Also one spinning class and try to incorporate leg strengthening in the gym. I don't feel as if I over-train..... But maybe a week off might help. Thanks for taking the time to respond!
