You're probably right. I guess my thought process was that I'd make more progress by pushing myself, and I guess I tend to think of muscle soreness as a good thing (as opposed to sore joints, which definitely implies doing something wrong). I mostly go for approximately 30 minutes as you suggested, and round up to the nearest km because integers are nice, but doubt I'd be able to carry on a conversation.

I'm not coming into this completely from couch-potato mode, since I did a lot of biking and swimming prior to decided to try running. I've been shooting for running every other day, but maybe I'll take an extra recovery day (or two, depending how I feel) and then repeat 5k in 33 minutes, which I already know I can comfortably do when appropriately recovered. I might be overdoing it, but I really don't want to move backwards, so maybe instead of continually pushing myself forward I'll just hold myself to staying at this point for a couple of weeks. Does that sound reasonable, or would it still be overdoing it?

All the muscles used to rotate my right shoulder are sore. My wetsuit is too big on top and the sleeve was sort of pulling down on my bicep on Saturday, making it really hard to stroke properly. I think other muscles made up for it. When I lift my arm over my head, I can actually see that a muscle over my shoulder blade is swollen. I am so getting a sleeveless wetsuit.

I got smacked in the knee with a kayak on Saturday and I have a giant swollen bruise now. I have a feeling I'm going to be sore tomorrow - today will have 16 mi of biking riding (approx.) and 2 hours of ultimate frisbee, all on not enough sleep.

I really hurt my neck/shoulder yesterday morning doing forking star jumps and I can still hardly move my head or my left arm. I got three hours sleep last night because I was in so much pain and tonight I had to miss a gig I'd been looking forward to for months. Screw you Jillian Michaels!

I did the hardest ride I've ever done yesterday: a 50-mile mountain bike race with 6000 feet of climbing. It was so hard I almost cried a couple of times. I think I am now going to invest in a foam roller now.

Foam rolling hurts like a bisque while you're doing it (especially quads) but it's like a little miracle afterwars.

I don't even know what I did yesterday, but the back of my legs are so sore. I think it's from squating and being on the floor on my hands and knees a lot? Anddddd I just got done with one of the hardest workouts I've done in years, so I'll be even more sore tomorrow! Yay!

Ran 5k Saturday; Saturday evening a friend was in town and very drunk and wanted to walk it off, so we wandered aimlessly for a while after swinging at the playground for an hour. Yesterday was the Pride Parade so I watched all of that and wandered all over the city and must have been walking pretty much all day long. Then, danced very enthusiastically all evening.

Today, everything hurts.

I took the week off from my crazy zumba/labooca schedule (usually 8 hours/wk + 4 hours of cycling there) which was great, I seriously needed to snooze, and great because some muscles needed a day off, but now my body's complaining about *not* being used, and it's Monday before I can go again. Sigh.

The stiffness in my muscles doesn't bother me - I see it as a sign of a good workout and stretch through the mild discomfort - but my left elbow has been giving me trouble while doing yoga for the past two days. I start my routine just fine but once I've done about... 6-8 sun salutations my elbow starts to REALLY hurt when I lower myself from plank to a pushup on my way to upward dog. When I feel the pain I try to modify my hand spacing to see if it's form-related but nothing seems to have helped yet so I just drop and stop. I think it's triceps tendonitis but it doesn't hurt at all once I stop - only while doing the movement once I've done it a fair number of times already. (it also doesn't hurt at all while doing straight-arm poses where I'm putting weight on my elbows, only on lowering). I hope this just means it's not a very bad injury yet and will heal quickly. If it doesn't get better in 2 weeks I'll go see my chiropractor and until then I'll keep trying to do my routine but drop and stop when I get the first hint of pain so I don't make it worse I suppose.

How weird is it that Ice Chamber this week was mostly dealing with upper body strength, but my hamstrings are the ones that are sore? They're feeling super tight/sore right now. Luckily there are foam rollers at my work, so I'll be using one tomorrow.

My hip flexors and "booty bones" hurt from horse riding earlier this evening. My arms are a bit sore from his headstrong pulling, too.

Totally worth it, though!

My anti-inflammatory miracle worker is a small glass of apple juice with two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar (must be unpasteurised 'with the mother') and a teaspoon of ground tumeric. I take this twice a day to counteract the negative effects of cycling 60miles every weekday and running 5-6 days a week. Oh, and stretching after a run. The tumeric is a great anti-inflammatory and the cider vinegar aids good circulation (I have pretty crepe circulation in my lower legs and tend to get swollen ankles if I sit around for too long - this concoction really does work for me).

Ouch ouch ouch. Climbing on Tuesday was brutal and I worsened it by hiking yesterday. Everything hurts and I'm walking like a 90 years old! I need a massage.

I hear you on that!

I climbed a mountain on Tuesday (took about 10 hours total) and I can barely walk now, so sore. My boyfriend and I were making fun of each other when walking up and down stairs yesterday because of all the wincing and slowness. We totally moved like elderly people. Ouch ouch ouch!

The fronts of my thighs really hurt from doing squats. Every time stand up, sit down or climb stairs I make an 'oof' noise.

Did a set of negative pull ups, but obviously did them wrong and pulled something... my upper middle back is crazy sore. I should probably get it checked out, but I have too much to do over the next few days so I probably won't get around to it until Friday.

My fingers are sore today, from climbing. Other muscles too, but my finger muscles and fingertips are most annoying. I'm improving my grip though, so that's awesome!

I went climbing once (on an indoor climbing wall). It was really fun but it was my forearms that were KILLING the next day. They hurt for about a week! I keep meaning to go back and have another go.
