I ran my first race since September 2nd this pass weekend. I woke up the next day sore and I am still sore today. After the two easy runs that i did since my race i felt great, but when i wake up in the morning my legs are tired and heavy. When i ran in college it would take me two days for the soreness in my legs to go away. Does anyone else experiance this? Is this normal? Am i just getting old?
Ibuprofen is your friend, OJ.
Hey, I saw on your profile you work in a shipyard in Marinette. My parents grew up in Menominee, right across the river. Not "in a van... down by the river" though.
At the end of the day, be happy with where you are and what you've accomplished.
