My Legs Are Killing Me — Time To Workout!

I've got a lower body workout, run/walk, light stretching and yoga on tap today. Time to get these sore legs moving this morning.

I’ve got a lower body workout, run/walk, light stretching and yoga on tap today. Time to get these sore legs moving this morning.

It’s been three days since my first hike of the season and my legs are still killing me. Yesterday’s spin class didn’t help either. Today my trainer scheduled a lower body workout and afterwards I’m planning on a short run followed by a 3-mile walk.

What are my poor legs to do?

I knew my knee injury set me back, but I had no idea it was this bad. I think my legs are working at 80% of where I was before the injury. My trainer warned me it would take time to rebuild my strength, but yowza! Yes, I know the sore legs shows progress. I just can’t let the soreness get to me.

I’ve got some light stretches this morning and the ice pack is on standby. Once I’m home from the gym, I’ll lightly ice up my hamstrings and quads. The key for me is minimizing the sitting. It’s just too dang painful to stand up or start moving around. I can’t even face the stairs.

Yoga seems to help as well. There’s a class at my gym later this afternoon. I hate to travel back and forth from the gym, but active recovery will increase my circulation, which in turn speeds up my muscle recovery.

Also, a little pedicure this afternoon won’t hurt either!

    You may want to try a muscle recovery supplement. I take one from Advocare that is a nighttime pill.
