Maybe someone can explain this...
I ride and train 4-5 days a week and have slowly upped my volume to 200+ miles a week. I ride at fairly high intensity levels (though I haven't really started full on intervals yet). From April to November my volume goes up to 300+ miles a week with weekly club rides twice a week and a (planned) race or two per month.
I have a very GOOD recovery program that seems to work for me. I get around 10 hours of sleep at night, and on harder training days I'll try to take a 1-2 hour nap in the afternoon. I stretch alot and sometimes elevate my legs at night and self embrocate.
I do have a rather high resistance to lactic acid burn while riding. Even when I hit my LAT I rarely if ever get any "burning" sensation in my thighs or calves (I usually just get slower).
However, I live in a two story house. Sometimes (or should I say "often") the next day usually in the morning after I wake up, when running up the stairs (or even walking up them) my legs will get that lactic acid burn. It's just 14 steps.
Is this from lactic acid build-up in my legs from the day before and if so how do I get rid of that? Anyone else experience this?
