My tactic is to keep moving around as much as possible both the day and the day after, including a very small run (yes I did run for 20 mins the day after my recent mara :-O)

The good news is, the second time around it shouldnt be as bad because your muscles should be more used to the stimulus. DOMS is good - its adaptation waiting to happen when recovery is finished!

Thanks for the advice Curly. I'll go for a walk later and see if I can face a short run in the morning (although I think you're crazy!). That's good news though, hopefully it'll be better this time round!

Well, for anyone who's curious, my legs feel pretty much okay this morning. I haven't gone down any stairs yet, but last time even sitting down was very painful. My quads are a little stiff and tired, but that's it. Hurrah! Was it the cold shower? the stretching? Or just the fact that I've already done that hill recently?

Got something to say?
