Leg Strength - Are Tired Legs Normal?
I have been running for the past two months. I started at 1.5 miles and have increased up to 3 miles 4-5 times a week. Just recently my legs have become tired almost instantly in my run.
Answer by Dominique:
I can run through it fine, but my legs are a little sore in the morning.
Is this normal? If not, is there anything I can do to fix this?
Thanks for your question about your running and your leg strength.
I don't think there is too much to be worried about.
A little muscle pain the morning after workouts is pretty normal.
It even has a name, i.e. DOMS = Delayed On-set Muscle Soreness.
It can last 24-48 hours. Muscle soreness is your muscles adjusting, recovering and growing after a workout.
Because you go running quite frequently you probably still feel some soreness from the previous workout when you start your runs.
As your legs warm up the soreness goes and your run is fine.
As long as this is just a little bit soreness and little tenderness, all is fine.
