I started the strength and flexibility podcasts on my rest days, but I'm finding that my muscles are so sore the next day that it makes running (and everyday stuff) very uncomfortable. I'm sure it means that the exercises are working but my left Achilles' tendon is really hurting today!
I think I'm probably not warming up properly, or not enough, but I also found the podcasts to be really slow. Does anyone else find this? The exercises are fine, but I get quite impatient waiting for the instructions!
Today I completed week 5 run 1 and I incorporated some of the arm warm-up exercises into the walking bits just for good measure, but soon there won't be any walking bits to do this!
So I'm looking for something else to improve my flexibility on my rest days. I've ordered a beginners Pilates DVD so will try that first. Anyone else doing this or something similar?
