All day yesterday my quadriceps were horribly sore - from Sunday morning's practice. I felt like an old man going up and down the stairs at work - heck even getting into and out of my chair. This morning that area is less sore - not a whole lot less, but less sore. Now my inner thighs are yelling, but not quite as unbelievably as my quads yesterday.
I really want to go to practice tonight, but I'm not sure yet if I'd be able to do much of anything. I know that I need to keep working on my rolls, but I'd hate to not be able to go the whole 2.5 hours. The next practice is Thursday night, and if I can't go tonight, I'm pretty sure Thursday won't be a problem. The question is, if I go on Thursday, will I be able to make Sunday?
I'm sure after a couple of months, these muscles will wise up, get stronger, and I won't have quite this problem.
