I try to do cardio everyday, which evens out to be about 4-5 days a week. I go to the gym and lift weight 2-3 times a week, but I only ever work out my upper body and abs because I feel like all the workout my legs really get, they'll get from running.
I went to a body works class last night which gave me a full body workout and I woke up this morning sore all over. My legs were so sore that I couldn't go for a run (they're that level of sore where it hurts to walk up and down stairs). Tomorrow, I was planning on going to a spin class, but my soreness has only increased throughout the day and I know it won't be gone tomorrow, so how do you work through this?
I know you're supposed to give your muscles 48 hours to heal, but I always thought that was only in reference to weight lifting, as in don't workout your biceps two days in a row. If you're supposed to do cardio every day, how does that give your leg muscles time to heal? And if you work out your legs really hard lifting weights, how do you get up and do cardio the next day? Do you just power through the soreness or are you supposed to wait until you're not sore anymore?
