Hi All....i'm currently training for my first sprint tri. I was reasonably fit coming into it and would run/gym it regularly. Since starting out on my tri journey however I am really struggling with muscle recovery....a tough bike or run session leaves me stiff and sore for 2-3 days. I don't want to take that much time off after each training sessions so some of my runs/bikes are complete torture with heavy legs.
Any advice? I eat a good balanced diet, try to up carbs on training days but any advice for muscle recovery would be greatly appreciated! If i'm on fresh legs my training is amazing but not realistic unforunately to leave a break inbetween!
