OK, NOW I'm sore! The "second day" effect.

Last post I wrote of my concern that I didn't feel any soreness the day after a very hard ride.

I should have known better.

Commonly, I don't feel sore until the 2nd day.

Such is the case now: I am VERY sore.

Unfortunately, I also took a moderately hard ride with a steep hill on Saturday before noticing any soreness. I wondered then, why I felt so sore immediately after that ride.

Of course! It's the "second day" effect!
