Running on Sore Legs - Good or Bad ???

Posted Jun 09 2009 11:31am
Sore legs. We all get them. The question is, do you train when you have them? I do. I don't go all out, but I try to put in a few miles at an easy pace (maybe 30+ seconds slower than my normal training pace) just to keep moving.

For example, I went to kickboxing for the first time with my wife and thought I would need to be put in traction by Monday morning. So, Monday after work I plowed through just over 5 miles at 8:20/mile pace which is about 30 seconds off my normal EZ training pace.

Today, I have little or no soreness. Pretty cool. I'm curious if anyone else runs on sore legs to work out the kinks. I've read that some do and some don't for various reasons but I think the Good outweighs the Bad as long as the pain is just pain and not injury.

I'm heading out for another run today, but it will be after about 1 mile in the pool so that should warm me up pretty good!
