Sore Legs
 
This week has been a Bear. High winds, deep Snow to ride through and lots of hills had made my legs sore. Without using something that make me feel like I belong in a home, is there anything I can use to make my legs feel better?

You can use a day off the bike. Everybody needs one from time to time.

Potassium and protein. Look at body building and workout diets. I used to lift every day and soreness was a constant battle.

Just take an easy day. First two days of this week were windy for me. I had a big tailwind on Mon so I pushed hard and managed a KOM on a flat stretch. Yesterday was headwind both ways. My legs were sore coming down the stairs this morning so I made today an easy day. I rode both ways with about 20% less power. It takes a little longer but tomorrow my legs should be back to normal.

I find knocking off the beer for a day or two helps more than anything. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to do that more often.

There's the carbs that moochems mentioned.

Unless you drink the watered down stuff.

Two fingers of Bombay in that tonic water relieves brain cramps as well.

Bananas post ride as well as a hot tub.
