So, any soreness? If yes, this is normal and your body will slowly adapt to the intensity, just like it had to adapt to the new mechanical action of running.
Now, is the right time to find a sport masseur or a good myotherapist.
You need to look after your body in more ways than just nutrition, vitamins and fluids…You need to stretch, do some leg soaking, have Epsom salt baths and get a massage at least twice a month. This will give your muscles the elasticity back after a hard work out that will create muscle damages and muscles tightness.
You will have to learn to listen to your body and miss a hard work out if needed. Nothing wrong with dropping the intensity if you don’t feel 100%. Still cover the distance easy or include a bit of walking…This is your next assignment
Have fun and keep positive when you have a bad day as your body will always thank you for it!
