If I ever thought I was sore from riding before, I was wrong. Today I woke up and I was sore like I’ve never been before. I hurt from my trapezius to my deltoid to my infraspinatus to my triceps. My latissimus dorsi aches, as does my gluteus maximus. My adductor longus muscle, gracilis muscle, and my vastus lateralis muscle are all screaming! My gastrocnemius is so sore, it’s hard to walk.

OUCH!

Okay, all you endurance riders out there, what is your #1 cure for aches and pains???

I need to know.

Because although I’m hurting, I’m still going riding today…

P.S. I hope I got the names of my aching muscles right. I enter my last year of nursing school on Monday… ugh. Less training time, more study time.

    Have you tried the homeopathic remedy, Arnica montana?

    It’s pretty good stuff. I’ve used it for years on myself and on the race dogs.

    Donna,

    I’ll have to try that out! I love herbal and alternative medicine, so this sounds right up my alley. Thanks!!!
