Muscle soreness what is normal
(Yorkshire, England )
I'm a 33 year old male and have been running for 15 years. Usually 5 miles 2 - 3 times per week. I'm lean everywhere, 80kgs and 5ft 9 ", apart from a little belly fat that I would like to strip so I started the lose belly fat routine.
When I started my 3rd session of week one the stiffness / soreness in my right hamstring and left glute prevented me from sprinting properly. I tried but my body wouldn't do it and was quite painful.I finished the session but reduced the rest down to 45 seconds. Legs still felt like lead whenI'd finished.
The thing is I didn't really expect this as I am already quite fit and would like to know if what I'm feeling is normal or not and how long I should leave it before I try another session.
I'm very worried that I may have a tear but don't know how to tell.
I would like to add that I have felt fantastic on the off days and have had more energy and strength during my weight routines.
