The absolute worst part of being a "comebacker" is not being able to tell when you have over exerted yourself. I had a phenominal practice session yesterday .. time to rest in between covered scads of material...
and today I have chops that feel like hamburger .. lips are a little swollen ... and even in an adjusted practice routine of long tones, pedal tones, and lip slurs it was terrible.
now I am soaking my lips in the ice from my soda glass.
besides the obvious.. any suggestions.
