I am still sore from the first decent run I did last week. Even though I’m still very in shape the specific running was quite the killer. I was very surprised to see that after months of not running going out and doing 3 miles I totally killed my calves.
I took five days off and then started just jogging around the block to recover. It almost felt as though I first started running in the five finger shoes. It’s good to have a calibration point to know how long I can go without doing that before I have to do something about it.
Do I also learned that after about four days of not running actually feel the effects and don’t run as efficiently. It’s a difficult balance to achieve of overtraining but not having your performance deteriorate.
Thus off for a short run this morning I go!
