Yep…I got the Jimmy Legs

Ever get the “Jimmy Leg” after a long runs or hill workouts? I’m famous for them and they drive my husband nuts. He says it reminds him of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer dates a girl with the “Jimmy Legs.” Not only do my legs twitch and kick on their own when I’m trying to fall asleep, but apparently, my feet do some sort of running motion while I’m asleep. Now, it’s not as bad as last year when I started running, but I still get the Jimmies after tough runs.

Is it just me or do other runners get the Jimmy leg?

  1. OMG, I totally get them, especially if I run more than 12ish miles. I’m trying compression socks (ones that go up to almost your knees) when I sleep after the long runs. It seems to help.
