    no more muscle burning

    Primal Fuel
    i had muscle burning riding my bicycle to work every morning, while i was on a high carb/western diet. especially if i didnt have breakfast.
    i cant even remember the last time, cause my switch to a lower carb diet seems to have fixed it.
    i think my low speed and high intensity abilities rose too, because i always ride my bike in maximum gear and thought about buying a new pinion(s)

    anyone noticed something similar?

    Similar thing happens to me about 10 weeks into primal. I stopped getting sore after heavy lifting!

    interesting, i've noticed that i get less lactic acid burn, which is what i think you're referring to. however, in terms of my strength training, i also take a little bit longer to recover. personally, i've also had good results with taking more recovery time, and making strength training a twice a week, three times at most kind of thing. i was way over the top before.

    I'm under the impression that if you don't feel the burn after heavy lifting, it might not have been effective.

    I still feel the burn really good and welcome lactic acid burn with open arms.

    there is a difference between muscle soreness, which is caused by muscle raptures/fractures and the described burning (lactat). the burning happens while doing high intensity movements which are performed for longer periods of time/high reps i.e. running or cycling

    just depends on who you ask. some trainers say the burn is a good thing others relate the burn to the same condition that causes rigor mortis

    I live at the top of what I lovingly call, "My F***-all Big Hill." Its like a 200 foot gain over the spread of 4 blocks. When I first moved there, I would have to stop and rest every half a block: legs burning, heart pounding, drinking in air.

    Just yesterday, I walked up the hill while talking on the phone the entire way (coincidentally, trying to explain Primal to my mom). I stopped once or twice, but it was super briefly to shake out my legs a bit or take in the view, not the leaning-against-fences-panting-like-im-dying rests I took before. Within a few seconds I would continue, and I made it up the hill in probably less than half the time it used to take me before.
