Just wondering, is going out for an easy run (30 - 40mins) tomorrow to soon after the marathon?
I'm assuming that you run the marathon today, but regardless of when, from my experience your legs will tell if you can go or not! You may feel OK now but tomorrow is most definitely another dayOwain said:Just wondering, is going out for an easy run (30 - 40mins) tomorrow to soon after the marathon?
Personally I would say absolutely too early. The muscles in your legs have lots of little tears in them and they need time to repair. If you run today you will be delaying that repair and probably making them worse.Owain said:Just wondering, is going out for an easy run (30 - 40mins) tomorrow to soon after the marathon?
The richest sources of protein are meat, fish, cheese and eggs. Plant proteins are also good and have a lower fat content. Good sources are beans (esp. soy beans), lentils, nuts, quorn and seeds.Owain said:Thanks Trinity,
I had decided not to go out today when I woke up due to the very thing you said.
I have just run a marathon and I should sit back and let my body recover.
The last thing I want to do is injure myself considering I have a 1/2 marathon at the end of next month.
Sure, I feel like I could run quite easily today, no real side effects from the marathon but my body needs time....so rest it is for the next couple of days and then I will be stronger than before :d
What are good sources of protein?
Plenty of meatOwain said:Cheers!
Meat it is then :d
