Project Speed Demon: Minor Update

Woke up this morning feeling quite tired and still a little sore.

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s not the type of soreness that indicates anything is amiss — it’s just typical workout sore. But when running at 5.0, I’d avoided nearly all discomfort. So this is a little surprisising! Six minute-long “sprints” at 6.0 have done a number on me. Weird.

I’m definitely hydrated enough (I drink about 100 oz of water every day) and eat appropriate pre-run and post-run foods, etc. So I guess I’m just mentioning this to say: Yep, indeed, my little legs do feel challenged by this increase in speed.

Provided that the soreness doesn’t escalate into anything else, I don’t mind it at all.

In fact, I take it as a sign that I am doing something right.

  1. Yep that soreness is more likely a good sign than a bad one. I hate the post-workout aches though but it’s just your muscles casually ripping apart and being replaced by new, better ones. 😛 Keep up the hard work!

    1. Yup! That’s what I figured. I don’t mind being sore at all — just thought I’d update everybody on how that little change has had a big impact!
