Is there more lactic acid and swelling in connective tissue because I'm eating fewer calories than I'm used to? I understand that eating extra food helps with recovery and I was curious if eating less is making recovery more painful?

Or is it simply just being off 2 weeks and going back to my working weight?



Some people may not have seen the shoutbox in which you also stated that this "sick" period comprised of a fever for several days, sore throat and not finding it easy to drink fluids etc; that sort of information is important because it may just be that your body has not recovered from such an ill period...there's sick and there's sick, if you know what I mean, and the degree of sickness will dictate how well a person's body responds to a first session back in the gym and so forth.
