It's good pain :)

Jumped on the stationary at the gym for 35 minutes of intervals the other night, knackered the quads. Then to "cool down" jumped on the treadmill for 10min tempo. That smashed up the calves a bit. But loved it.

I am doing the same. I have found that yoga and massaging my legs helps. I did 5k for the first time on Wednesday and came home and immediately did 1/2 yoga with a focus on stretching out my legs. I then spent about 10 minutes massaging my calves and thighs. I thought I would be pretty sore yesterday but I was ok.

For yoga I do a more exercise oriented yoga rather than the mystical meditative type. The best I have done is called Aussie Fit Yoga and I do the Bonus Extra Program: Stretch & Flex. I find it really makes a difference.

Yep...agree there.

My legs are constantly sore and tired at the moment. Training for a half ironman at the moment and it is shelling me. Averaging about 7 hours training but really need to bump it up to 10-12 for a few weeks.

Silly thing is I feel more comfortable on long runs than long rides...a 2 hour run for me is reasonably confortable but a 2.5 hour ride is a battle. I think it is a pacing thing.

just a thought, but are you guys trying any recovery techniques after your sessions? Should help with the pain a bit and means you can still train at your peak the next day.. Otherwise sounds like you're all hitting it pretty hard! :)
