Good Sore

 Pushing your body as far as your body will go is important for peak performance. Knowing when a good sore crosses the line to potential injury can be tricky.

Hard one day and easy the next is key to allowing the body to work and recover. Simple as it may seem, your body can fool you into thinking that going hard everyday is okay. Be careful as when it’s too late, it’s too late.

Some people have tremendous motors that work all the time, but motors are not always the most important part when the joints can wear away without proper care and rest. Some of the greatest college and Olympic wrestlers of all time are nearly crippled from overuse injuries. Hips and knees are far too easily worn away.

Keep the balance between hard work and rest. A good sore is in the muscles and not the joints. Know the difference and live to run another day.
