Wore the heck out...

I decided to take Wednesday through Friday off this week to get some riding in. On Wednesday I built a log ride with a friend and spent most of the evening riding over and falling off of it. Yesterday I went out to a local trail with some friends and rode most of the day. Today, I hurt everywhere. My upper body from carrying 100lb logs and my legs from hammering around the trails and over obstacles. I really want to ride today, but I don't think I'll survive. What's a guy to do?

Have you ever ridden too much? What's a good recovery plan? I've been popping ibuprofen like they were orange pez, drinking plenty of water, and trying to relax a bit to no avail. Maybe I should spend a day inside.
