I started a new job three weeks ago. It's a good thing, but I basically went from having a total desk job for the past three years to being on my feet ALL day. If I try to do a workout after work, it is total crap. For example, last Tuesday's 4mi run took me 10 mins longer than my previous slowest.
My legs feel like wood, and although I feel like I'm working pretty hard, I'm apparently a snail.
Yes, I have good supportive shoes (doc martens - from when they were made in England but I never wore them much, so they're pretty much new, and Keens). Might also pick up some danksos.
Since it's going to be a little cooler tomorrow, I'm going to try wearing my compression tights while at work.
Any other suggestions to help?
Had the same situation for a few weeks this summer. Best thing for me was either get up super early and run or make sure I got some caffeine and a good stretch in before a workout after work. Also taking a minute every hour or so to stretch a bit while at work would help a bit as well.. might get funny looks from people for that one but hey - So what? The caffeine probably helped the most though.
