Two days ago I resumed my weight-lifting regime after taking a number of months off to focus on my running. Because of the lengthy time away, I started with my ‘sissy’ 10 pound dumbbells. The workout went fine and all was well. I woke up around 3 a.m. that evening and was surprised that I did not feel sore at all! I reminded myself that I still had some time before I was out of bed.
The morning after I was sore as hell. It’s amazing how many muscles you don’t use while jogging. :P I am now re-acquainted with all of them.
Tomorrow I limber up with a 10k run then the next day I am back to the weights. I should be past the initial soreness within a week, I suspect.
