Should you run if your thigs/glutes are aching from doing lots of squats the day before?
No. It'll just cause more damage. Cycle if you can.
Okay - will give them a rest! Thanks for the reply
I kind of run through the post-workout pain regardless!
Yes, you will be fine. An easy run will help with recovery.
I tend to do my strength session on easy days, which means that it is typically followed by a hard day. Often a bit achey if I've been doing pliometrics, but it doesn't seem to affect my training.
However, I played football on Monday for the first time in about five years and my legs are killing me today. 20 min tempo planned for lunchtime, which might be interesting.
I find a gentle jog/run helps recovery - first few steps can be painful but by the end my legs tend to feel better.
I find a gentle run loosens me up but I tend to know if I'm doing to much, also cycling helps and a good stretch out after.
If I stayed in when my legs ached I'd never run at all
