Today ..... I DON'T :-):-) (was expecting to so very happily surprised)

51 miles on the bike is awesome. I couldn't do it!

Nice one Sarah - decent mileage. And it's all about how hard the climbs are on the bike, I think. But I don't bike any more so what do I know?!

Yes, mine mostly gone now. Took a full week though. And 2 x foam roller and stretch sessions, and 2 x easy runs. Back to a normal running week this week, hopefully.

What caused you to not have DOMS Homer, do tell! :-) G

If I knew G, then I would bottle it

I did ice my calves after the run, drank lots of fluid and spend 3 hours on the sofa watching sport...maybe that is the key?

I do wonder if de-hydration exacerbates the muscle soreness? Interesting. Was a very muggy one a week ago and only cups for water. And though I drink water for Scotland, I was and can be dehydrated on a hot day for quite a while after. Hmmm.

Ice, yes. Sitting on the sofa, probably less so! Nice though. :-) G

Yeh, I do think that ice and water helps a lot. I don't often ice but my achilles was a teeny bit niggly so I thought it would be worthwhile and it certainly can't hurt.

It was a muggy day and I am fairly sure that hydration level makes a big difference.

All gone now. So the answer was "1 week" for me. I can do speed work again this week, without fear of doing myself an injury (I hope!) :-) G
