Something has really been bothering me lately. Today I raced, absolutly went hard, felt significant burnng, suffered, etc and felt physically tired after the race. The last couple of races I have not had significant soreness the day of the day after. I have a little bit of soreness in the morning but not much at all. Even when I go to the gym and work reps to failure I do not feel sore that much unless it is the first time doing the workout (except right after).
Is this normal? Do most people feel real sore after a race? I come from one of the no pain no gain type attitudes and it seem like I sould feel sore that day or at least more. I have the same feeling after a breakthrough type workout also. I will say though that if I get on a bike tomarrow my legs will scream and yell at anything over easy riding.
Thanks as always...
