Darn the DOMS!!! If you don't know what DOMS is...it's the soreness you feel 24-72 hours after a strenuous workout or activity. Of course I pushed myself during the workout...it's what I do. And yes....having the soreness of DOMS allows me to know that I did push it and that I need to do it again! I know you can all relate....you love the feeling that a great workout can give you.
Today I am still VERY sore but decided to do a shake out run to ease the pain. My hamstrings were yelling at me as I started. I settled into a nice pace and soon I began to push it. So much for a nice easy run!
|Excited to see if I can push this pace in my first 5k race in April.|
I'm excited to run race courses this year that have hills that have slowed me down in the past...I plan on tackling them strong this year!!!!!
As for my DOMS, I am rolling and plan on a llllloooooonnnnnggggg epsom salt bath later. The Frostbite 5 Miler race is this weekend and is the beginning of race season for me! Bring it!!!
What are your weaknesses? How do you work on them?
