I should have known to plan a REST day after a long run. Did I actually think I would be up to working out this morning after a long run yesterday... the longest distance since my half marathon last spring?
I am suffering a bit from DOMS, Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness, as my muscles are a bit more sore now than they were 24 hours ago. For the most part, the soreness left behind from my 7-miler yesterday is a good kind of sore.... the kind us sicko runners enjoy. Most of my soreness is in my quads, which makes me really happy.. happy it's not related to my knees.
However, my left calf is a bit tender, as if I might have tweaked a muscle. The weird part.... POM is struggling from the same darn issue in the same exact spot! Now I have a name to put with that muscle... Soleus.
Tomorrow I plan to hit up the pool for some nice speed work. I have been looking for some good workouts for the pool, something different from just swimming my 2000 meters. I have found a handful and look forward to trying one out tomorrow!
Happy Monday, y'all!
