    It is absolutely normal my friend, it just that you haven't run in a while. Your legs will continue to sore for about a week, just run like normal and stretch a lot and in about a week you should feel normal again, may be even feel better. Just don't take to hard if you feel your body can't handle it, you can seriously injure yourself

    Yes it is, because your body muscle isn't use to such intensive work out, and suddenly you are pushing a 2 mile jog. Is going to hurt a little for a new days. Once you get use to it, you won't feel a thing.

    Stay healthy :)

    yeah, this is definitely normal. it just means that you're working your body hard, which is a good thing. cooling down and stretching AFTER you run is a good idea too. also, if you get shin splints (they hurt so bad) or sore ankles, ice will be your best friend.

    It is normal...I am a marathoner...What really helps me and is very inportant is to stretch even more thouroughly after you run...Then soak in the bathtub with water as hot as you can stand...You will feel loose in the morning I promise!
