@missingwdw GIRL! I feel your pain! I picked the total wrong day to start going to the gym again! I went Monday afternoon, I ran 4 miles that morning, and figured I would be fine to run again by today. Nope! I am SO sore! Everything hurts! Arm, shoulders, abs, hips, thighs, I did not think I went that hard couldn’t run today, I feel like an old woman. So to make up for it, I think I’ll do 8 miles tomorrow. I hope you feel better tomorrow!
So I was doing some resistance exercises when in the middle of my side lunges my thigh cramped up. Now I feel like it’s strained.
I sure hope it feels better by tomorrow morning so I can run!
This may sound weird, but this evening eat some bananas as well as dill pickles. Both are very good for muscle cramps. To try and get the quad to release, do some slow stretches on your quads. Give it at least 45 sec to a minute before you try to progress into the stretch.
Well yesterday was going to be a rest day because of baseball but we had storms so baseball was canceled and after my fourth cookie I decided to go run the treadmill at the gym, I did 3 miles on the treadmill and then came home and my daughter wanted to walk so i did three more, it was nice outside because the rain it stopped and it was cool and breezy !!
@missingwdw You could also try taking some magnesium and potassium supplements those would help as well. In addition, cycle heat and cold presses on it will increase the blood flow and healing. Soaking in the bath with hot water and Epsom salt is also beneficial.
