It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
Retired 1/1/13 ... Tired of being broken and fat ... Hit 296# Memorial Day 2016 - New goal = To be able to enjoy running 4-5 hours through the woods again by Fall 2016.
..., and my co-workers always schedule meetings in the upstairs conference room the day(s) following my marathons - I think they think it is funny....
...- Although, sometimes its the 2nd day after that I am the most sore.
Agony of Da Feet (#2867)
Run to Win24 Marathons, 17 Ultras, 16 States (Full List)
(wow, been a while since that's been updated...)
Yeah, today (2nd day after) I noticed it in my quads for most of my recovery run.
Also, while my shoes from that day were still wet this morning, they've finally started to dry out tonight -- had left them sitting outside under cover, but it's been very humid and not sunny, so that has probably hindered the drying process.
It has an official name and acronym:
DOMS - Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
The foam roller is your friend.
I always have 3 or 4 pair because they last longer if you let them fully dry out - I also have a boot dyer that I dry them out if they get sloshy.
