Jaana Heino Posted April 8, 2003 Report Share Posted April 8, 2003 Ok, here is a new experience for me: having overworked and (slightly) injured myself in the process. My last week's training was unusually strenous - not any individual class was exactly over my limits, but several of them were quite to the limit, and put together they seem to have been too much. I've got two problems because of this: first, I've managed to get the upper parts of my inner thighs so tight and painful that walking is not fun at all, let alone trying to stretch or really work them. Second, I feel absolutely wasted in all of my body, weak and tired sort of like having a mild flu (without other flu-like symptoms). Any hints how to get rid of this, and missing as few classes as possible? I don't think I can skip the beginner swords class today, as I'm expected to help out there, but that's a low impact class and I can take it really easy there. Other than that, should I go to ballet classes and do whatever I can, or stay out completely? Should I stretch or not the painful muscles? I've got a sauna, and it helps the painful muscles for some time, but it makes me more tired, and the pain returns when the muscles cool down. I've tried cold on them too, but that just made them worse immediately, so I stopped. I don't think they are actually sprained, though. Quote Link to comment
