i am 38 and “weekend warrior” backpacker.
we just got back from a 3 day 25 mile trip. 10 miles each the 1st and 2nd day and 5 miles the 3rd.
my legs were so sore on the trip back that i could barely walk. this was unusual since i run about 20 miles a week and do resistance training 3 days.
i am sure the soreness was because of the constant up and down of the mountain terrain and the 30 lbs of gear that i was carrying. my calves especially were hurting bad.
can someone recommend a supplement that will help with this? i already cycle creatine but was reading about beta alanine that is supposed to fight fatigue. gonna up the leg training before next time too.
any advice appreciated.
