Default unexplained soreness - any thoughts?

my quads are incredibly sore right now and for the last two days - to the point where i wouldn't train them - and for no reason i can think of. i haven't really worked them hard since last monday and no other muscle in my lower body is sore. it feels like a TON of lactic acid buildup but i don't know why - the only training changes i've made recently have been to REDUCE lower body workload, not increase it. i'm taking a little time to let some inflammation in my left patella come down, hence the training reduction.

this is how my training looked last week:

sun: 10min sprint workout at night
mon: upper body lift, 10min sprint workout at night
tues, wed, thurs: off, sauna sessions to cut weight for wrestling
fri: upper body lift, swimming at night
sat: off

nutrition-wise, those three days - tues, wed, thurs - i was eating very little, 6-8 ounces of food per day at the most. i was drinking almost no water and wasn't taking my multivitamins at this point.

could this soreness be because of the lack of water/vitamins over those days? if so, could it be remedied by taking in disproportionately high amounts of both for a few days now that i'm not cutting weight?

thanks a lot for reading. i appreciate any help - usually cutting weight is my area of expertise lol, but this doesn't usually happen. any thoughts?

probably ball cancer.


i would credit it to lack of food.

i'm pretty sure you retain more water....if you don't drink much water.

not really. i don't do it all the time, but i work it in enough that my body's accustomed to it. i'm gonna hope it's the nutrient deficiency - it makes sense, it's just never happened before when i cut weight. i did a light cycling workout (not new either) to work out some of the lactic acid, today. hopefully that and some dynamic stretching afterward will relieve some of it (along with, y'know, eating again).

That soreness isn't lactic acid. It's probably micro tears in your muscles. And the slow healing may have to do with your poor nutrition.
