Default Strained Muscles

Hi Guys,
I recently overworked my quads and forearm muscles last week at the gym, then took a 30 minute swim. I've been out of the gym for two days now, and am wondering if it's okay to get back in the water, on account of the water being 82 degrees. I'm not sure if that's good or bad while I'm in recovery.
Thanks,

A *non-medical* view from a fellow swimmer and run/cycle/gym regular: The legs don't do much in front crawl anyway (especially TI), so I'd say you'd be fine and keeping them moving may even be good for them. Just be very careful on your push offs, which is the one time you will use those muscles, and of course be very wary of cramp. Sorry, but I've got no idea what 82 degrees F is :-D

Thanks for the tip, yes I'd have to be wary of that push off. But I think you're right moving around in the pool might be a good idea. Oh and 82 F is 27 C c(-=
