Have you ever gone hiking on a whim and wound up with crazy sore leg muscles the next day?
I’m not necessarily talking about a hard hike, either, although those will contribute to sore muscles. I’m talking about easy ones too.
Unfortunately, no matter how easy your hike is, if you don’t walk or hike a lot, your leg muscles (the ones located beside of your shins) will most likely be unhappy later.
Have you been there? I know I have! Recently, in fact.
Today, I wanna share a bit about our annual hike on the Virgina Creeper Trial (with lots of photos) and give you a recipe for a DIY sore muscle ointment that was a lifesaver for me 24-48 hours after the hike!
If you and your family don’t walk or hike much, let me encourage you to set aside some time to get outside and make a go of it. You’ll love it. Just be sure you have some of this sore muscle ointment handy afterward! Your muscles will thank you!
