Whew! That sounds brutal. I completely understand you dilemma. Hopefully Luke will chime in later. I’ve worked with a lot of Special Operators how spend all day in 40lbs of body armor and a lot of other gear. They are worked at the end of the day just like you. You’re in good company but that does not help you in your plight.
What I’ve done, not with Luke, but with other athletes who work demanding jobs is to count these days days a training. Nothing will kill your legs more than standing around on concrete. These days may not improve your performance in your sports but they still contribute to your fatigue. You need to respect that.
Perhaps you can develop a better recovery protocol after these work days. While the Normatech boots are effect for Luke and several other athletes I’ve worked with they are bulky, expensive and hard to travel with. My preferred high end recovery tool is a Compex e-stim. You’ll see Kilian using one in Training for the Uphill Athete on page 110. I have the newer version which is wireless and easy to wear under clothes. Many of the athletes I have worked with have found this a very effect tool for putting some life back into hammered legs.
Swimming is my favorite recovery method for restoring legs but can be logistically tough especially now.
