Yesterday I did my first ever 10k run. My legs stiffened up quite a bit after.. and as to be expected stiff today too.
I'm not bothered by the stiffness its all a part of strengthening the muscles up, I am just wandering what I should do to get the optimum results from the muscle workout.
I stretched afterwards, have been drinking lots of milk for protein. Will stretch some more today.
Does it matter if I go for another run, or play badminton, whilst I've still got pretty tight, aching muscles? I would stretch before and after.
Anyone got any tips.
I the past with aching muscles I have just stretched and got on with doing some more... is this less effective than waiting for them to heal.
Thanks for reading, all tips welcome
