On Saturday i had a 2 hour ballet class that was a level up from what i'm used too, followed immediately by an hour of pointe. Today my legs are so sore i can hardly walk! I have more dance classes on tuesday and i dont want to be literally limping through them, do any of you have any advice? Thanks!

There's an arnica massage balm by Welleda that's very good for easing muscle soreness. It suggests putting it on after a shower or bath when the skin is still warm, but I find it helps to put it on if you're aching during the day. It has a strong smell, which some people may not like but that's a small price to pay! It's also good for easing foot sprains.

Dropofsun How are you feeling today. ??

much better, thank you. i tried the salt bath, light exercise, and lean protein which all seemed to help. i'm still a little bit sore but i can walk and dance and stuff just fine. thankfully what happened on saturday was just a scheduling fluke and i wont have 3 hours of ballet in a row again anytime soon!
