Our expert says:
As we get older and unfit, our bodies loose the ability to recover quickly. The pain that you are experiencing are most probably due to micro tares in the muscle and the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles. This impaires boold flow to the muscles and causes an ischemic pain in the muscles. This will prevent the body from moving, in order for rest and healing to occur.
To remedy this, start off even lighter for a longer period and gradually work your way up. Stretching and a good cooling down period will be essential, as well as hot and cold treatments on the muscles. Myprodol can be used to ease the inflammation and accute pain but only for a couple of days.
