Ok so i started track and Field on monday and we did hardcore running and and exercises. Now its tuesday and my legs are KILLING me. I can feel that its my muscles but it hurts really hard and if i walk fast or do anything it really hurts! I have track again tomorrow and im expected to go but i don’t know if i can do it! would i get hurt even more? Is there a way to get rid of muscle pains by tmrw morning?
Not to my knowledge, I play football and Lax and I have experienced this basically on the start of every season. If you go to practice tomorrow, it will hurt in the beginning during warm ups and stretching but once you start running you will forget about it. but after the practice, when you stop pumping and moving your legs will be killing again due to acid building up on the muscles from a lack of oxygen. This will go on for about 3-4 days im guessing getting a bit better after each day.
Now here is what you can do or atleast what helps for me.
1)Drink as much water as you can, this helps with something and speeds up the removal of the acid
2)You can also take a very warm bath, this will suthe your muscels and relax them
3)get a good night sleep
4)drink some Gatorade during practice
5) Pop an advil a half an hour before practice this will take off the achyness and the pain
6) Stretch every moment of the day you can, especially when you wake up, If you can do some dynamic stretching
***I am no doctor, this is simply what I do and I find it to help alot!***
