The post-long run soreness is coming with a vengeance. Does it take everybody else 2 days for that to happen? I felt pretty good yesterday, but it was painful to get out of bed this morning.

    Yes, 48 hours is pretty common time lag for muscle soreness. Annoying, isn't it? At least you know you really did work hard! Moving more will make it hurt less (walking, swimming, something slow and easy).

    Very common Lida, they even have a term for it "DOMS" - Delayed onset muscle soreness. It's a good thing though and Laura gives good advice, the best thing for DOMS is being active vice laying on the couch :-) Your muscles will come back more prepared and stronger for the next long run :-)
