New beginner in pain!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! Today is my third day using zenlabs and Im excited to looking forward to a healthier and better me! Today I was working out and my legs were hurting so bad that I had to stop. Any suggestions on what I could use to help with pain? And what is a good speed to begin running? 

Thanks to anyone that applies.

Stretching and yoga on off days to keep those leg muscles loose :) Im also a huge fan of advil and icy hot when the natural remedies dont quite cut it. 

Speed is always tough to gauge when youre first starting. A good rule of thumb is you should be running slow enough that youd be able to have a conversation with someone without huffing and puffing.

Hi Nikkia.


If you do back to back joggin/running, you will be sore. When we work out we tear muscle fibers and that is why we are sore. They heal and that is what makes us stronger. When I do T25 DVDs , man , by the 3rd day , can barely walk, he uses the calf muscles a lot. But it gets better.


Make sure you stretch properly after your workouts and again if you feel it later. Just make sure you Never Ever , stretch a cold muscle. You will pop a muscle and be out for weeks. Not cool. When I taught 10 classes or more, it sucks to be down with a popped muscle.


Welcome here and proud of you. Everyone helps here and it is so nice. Good luck.
