My body is killing me....

Specifically my , quads, and biceps. My co-coworkers were laughing at me as I took the elevator one floor up instead of climbing the stairs. It may have something to do with helping the old lady move all day yesterday as well, but man I'm sore. Gonna get some Tiger Balm on the way home, sit my on the couch, and play some MTX vs. ATV unleashed all night long. I hope I'm not the only one hurting today.

For those that ride pretty regularly (once every 2 months or so), do you still hurt after each trackday you do? Or do I get to look forward to this each and every time?:eh: All in all it was well worth it and is a SMALL price to pay for all the fun I had banging myself around.

To help prevent body aches due to muscle fatigue you should eat some bananas and take 800mg of motrin. the potasium in the bananas will break up the lactic acid in your muscles (the reason the are sore) and the motrin will help because it is an anti-inflametory(spelling). this will also help after the fact. in case you dont have a chance to get them before you work out.

stretching helps a lot. after doing normal trackdays, you kinda get used to it....and it doesn't feel as sore any more.

Just did a 2 day trackday (saturday and sunday). I was worried I wouldn't be able to walk but I been goin to the gym 3-4 times a week for the last 1 1/2 months.
I got a lil sore but working out REALLY helped. Start slow and take it easy.

Yeah, all that sweating will drain the electolytes right outta ya..
Bananas are good if you start cramping and {* insert favourite sports drink here*} helps to recover...

Sore legs and abs means you were really banging around out there Saturday...Good Job!!

You have to start loading up on your water a couple of days in advance.

I was seriously thinking about starting to practise the movements three weeks prior to my next trackday. I need to get back in the gym anyways but those muscles I used for the trackday, I don't think I ever used ... :laughing6

+1 on mountain biking. Professional racers supposedly ride more bicycles than motorcycles.

To get rid of the soreness, sitting on the couch just makes it worse. Drink a lot and walk a lot, it will get better the more you move as long as the movements are smooth and lowkey.

I'm not nearly as sore this go round than I was the last time, but the lst track day I rode every session, except 1, so that might be the difference!
