Hope you are feeling better. In an article somewhere I read that drinking low-fat milk after exercise help with soreness, because the of the protein, which function is to build and repaired muscles. I drink it and it refreshes me, I hope it does the rest too...lol..Thanks for the goodie!

Thank you both so much :) I do tend to get carried away, trying to make my body do what it used to be able to do. I will take your advice, go easy on my body for a bit, and then be more careful about overdoing it in the future. I just need to remember to be patient! Thanks again!
I think everything is in a good warm-up and cool down before and after your session, listen to your body, don't get carry away. My recommendation will be a good rest, a good restorative Yoga session, a walk or swim, basically let your body recover.
I did a wonderful workout the day before yesterday. I went all out, was more flexible than I've ever been, and felt fantastic. But now I'm in a lot of pain, mostly in the upper leg and thigh area. I must have stretched too hard during yoga. Any suggestions from you smart cookies about how to get rid of the pain? I've tried hot and cold therapies, light stretching, etc. Also, how do you know when you're stretching too far/hard (especially if there's not a lot of pain)? I'd like to avoid this "oops I broke my body" feeling in the future. Thanks!
