So after My first run yesterday, I 've woken up and remember why my fitness attempts always fail. My legs and back and various other muscles ache quite a bit (not as bad in previous attempts where's I've pushed myself a lot more). What normally happens though is my legs etc. then feel a lot worse tomorrow and potentially even more so the day after so further exercise / running is ruled out. but I'm really hoping that won't happen or I can find away to avoid it from happening ?!
And to think that yesterday I thought I didn't need a rest day?!? I genuinely felt fine after and I really didn't push myself too much.
I just wondered what people do for stretching etc. To avoid injury. Before/ after? What stretches? How long for?
Thank you so much for all your advice yesterday. I'm really hoping that I'm not going to have to start again again because I will need too many rest days!
