Well, it’s a few days later, and the situation has definitely improved. I was scooting around all day yesterday training clients, and being forced to get up and move made a huge difference (garbage out, groceries in, etc). Still pretty stiff, but on the mend.

I think I must have been way more dehydrated than I expected, at the time, and I think it’s like you said, Danny, and I didn’t hydrate enough the afternoon and evening following the previous day’s WOD.
I guess the take away here is don’t assume you’re rehydrated just because you slammed a bunch of water immediately after a workout. Rehydrate intermittently for a while afterwards, and make sure your tissues aren’t all dry and deflated when you smash.
(I’ve never wanted a Marc Pro so bad in my life.)
