If you are running semi-regularly, you may wake up some days feeling sore, tired, or mentally burnt out. That’s OK and it’s normal to experience these feelings every once in a while. If you feel this way more often than not, consider adding an extra rest day or a low impact cardio activity into your weekly routine.
