DOMS, NSAIDs and ice baths

here's a google search url that gives the flavor of the debate . . .
at least they have gotten away from blaming a buildup of lactate for muscle soreness, contrary to certain TdF commentators (not naming names . . . Paul Sherwin!)

I seem to remember that there was one sort of NSAID that just stopped pain, but I can't find the reference again.
I stopped poping pills every 4 hours and can put up with a little discomfort. (Marathon recommendations are to take just the 1/2 pill before the race.)

Here's some food for thought and another interesting new method a lot of Pro Cyclists are getting into: Air Compression Boots. Here's a link to one of the companies that sell them: http://www.normatecsports.com/mvp.aspx
They are pretty cool, and in theory make a lot of sense to help with venous return and aid in recovery. They are, however, pretty expensive. But, might be worth it if you can afford them. I've used a pair of one of my teammates and they are AWESOME. I am looking to invest in a pair myself eventually.

I do that when I'm doing wall sits exercises. If I slap myself in the face vigorously I can get an extra 30 seconds, usually. Plus it gives me that fresh face look.
