tired triathlon legs

Today my legs were really tired! No matter how long I attempted to warm up I couldn't get my legs to loosen up or feel ready for today's speed work. After more than 25 minutes of warming up and I decided to start my workout regardless of how I felt. I ran 8X300 meters with 100 meters of active recovery. Even though my legs were still sore and tight from Saturdays 66 mile bike and yesterday's cycling speed work I ended up having a fantastic workout! All 8 of the sets I ran were within 4 seconds of each other.

Since my legs were still so sore I decided to try and speed up my recovery by soaking in an ice bath after my workout. That usually works miracles.
