got out on slopes first time yesterday for 4-5 hrs of solid skiing...mostly green/light blue just to warm up and get my technique back...
.afterwords i felt fine but this morning my thighs are somewhat stiff and a bit sore....
one mistake is that i didn't do any stretching afterwords nor any post ski walking or cycling.
that said, however, what are your proven remedies to prevent or dissipate muscle soreness
(esp for the next day) so you can be up and ready asap?
light/moderate bicycling or walking? ice/heat? stretching?
would enjoy reading of proven approaches.
about me:..am 49, intermediate skier.. doing ski fitness too...trying to lose 25 lb as to lessen pressures on lower body
...also going for boot allignment next few wks at whistler's 'top shelf'...hoping to get out 60x this yr and am also
joining 'club linc' at whistler....so trying to be in as good shape as possible to avoid being 'the weakest link' of the group.
or is this normal the first few times out?
