After Monday’s struggle, I knew I needed to really take caution for my next peak run so as not to risk injury. Luckily the two days of rest and rejuvenation I had on Tuesday and Wednesday were much needed. As for the muscle cramps, a friend suggested I may need potassium so I picked up some bananas on my way home that evening and started eating one a day. So far I haven’t had any muscle cramps since.
Tuesday I was so sore, I felt like I could barely get around without needing a walker. Instead of doing the cross training I was supposed to do, I did some stretching, breathing, muscle massaging and yoga. I think it was exactly what I needed because the next day, the soreness was about 90% gone.
