So, I'm getting back into my running after a bit of a break doing well, running, and have started to bring my distances up to something sensible again with a 6.7 mile run round the village last night.
That's not exactly a huge distance, nor is it much further than my last run (6.2 miles) last week and the pace is not much faster. For some reason though, my legs are killing me this morning, especially my hips and hamstrings.
I stretched post run, had a recovery drink*, stretched and foam rolled this morning, all that good stuff, but they really are still sore.
Has anyone got any tips for both lessening the soreness right now and preventing it in the future?
* - yes, I know they don't do much, but even if it's just a bit of help repairing any damage I've caused to my boby, I'm willing to take it.
