    Doms :(

    Hey guys

    Well, its been a damn busy couple of weeks since I first started looking into Fell running and I have finally started running albeit on the roads / XC.

    Anyhow, for the first time since Oct I played 5-a-side footy for the company and I grafted my ar$e off I am rather fit from cycling, but as everyone knows its a different sport and something especially like 5-a-side there is no place to hide. When I finished I felt good, that was Monday.

    Today my hamstrings still feel tight and this is down to DOMS? So, should I try and go for a light run tonight or wait until the pain (more of a discomfort) has gone fully?

    Not necessarily the right thing to do, but I'd go for a light run - short & slow (less than 3mi) - to warm/loosen them up, and then give them a good stretch (at least 30 secs each muscle). And if you didn't, I would have stretched before & after the game, too.

    I should qualify this by saying I've hardly run since November because of injury. You might like to avoid the advice of someone who can't take care of themselves!!

    I did a short warm up as we were late getting there and no warm down, so thats prob not helped it.

    I would go out on my bike if I jsut wanted to try and make that soreness go away, the zero impact is much better for getting the blood moving around your legs and flushing the crap out. Doesn't matter how fit you are, this is just something that goes with doing stuff you've not done in ages!

    My sympathy is with you Martin as I did exactly the same thing a few years ago. I was with some old customer friends in Portugal and played a competitive indoor game of 5-a-side on a Monday night and was struggling to walk the next day A gentle 20min jog or even a mile or two walk might help

    Well its three days now since I played and slowly getting better. I get more pain when I first start walking from sitting down, when I have "warmed" up its not too bad.

    Ill try a small jog tonight see if that helps.

    Ha ha ha 2 mile yesterday 2nd run off 2017 and I have Doms.
    Great to have legs that know they have been out.

    Just funny as to how unfit I have become.
    So I'm at the bottom in fitness and mind.
