I was alternating jogging days (with core work) and Jillian Michael's 30DS plus some pilates for several weeks. The last 2 weeks, I have only been able to run/jog outside & do basic core/arm work afterwards due to time restraints & being out of town.
I have noticed that my legs seem to be getting BIGGER. Both thighs & calves. Definitely not what I was hoping/expecting to see. I have increased my duration & distance with running significantly since I've been running every-other-day for a couple of weeks (fun to see that progress). However, I'm still only running 25-30 minutes, so definitely not a distance runner.
Suggestions? Is this possibly because of dropping the "circuit training" & Pilates? I'm going to have to give up outdoor running for the next couple of weeks for the most part as my husband is traveling & I can't take off and leave the kids (no jogging stroller). So, maybe I'll answer my own question as I go back into Jillian/Pilates mode
Thanks for your advice.
