I think Active X has finally interferred with my training. 400 meters of lunges is what did me in. The lunges took place last Wednesday and I can finally walk today--Monday. I was able to do one swim workout between then and now and an easy, flat mountain bike ride helped get the legs working again on Saturday.

 

A friend mentioned that a few things may have contributed to how sore I was (in addition to the fact that I have never done 400 meters of lunges before). He said that I should have stretched more and eaten some form of protein after the workout.

 

Gale, How does protein help sore muscles? and how much stretching do you do after a big workout?

 

For fun: mountain biking in Montana de Oro State Park--Morro Bay, California.
