So this question comes as I lie in bed, legs aching, incapable of falling asleep. I worked out in the evening today since I couldn't get to the gym in the morning, and had a successful deadlift and squat session. My legs still hurt, however, and it's noticeable enough that I can't get comfortable in bed. Any suggestions for how to get to sleep after an evening workout?
