Default R.I.P. My bicep

Today i was out having a good time shreding. After a bit i pretty much killed my right bicep; to clarify, its really sore.
What exercises/stretches could i do could to make it non sore, or pre soreness streching?

Well, what the crap did you do? Bang it? pull it? hyperextend?

If it's not actual tissue damage, advil and icepack is your best bet.

The thing is, i'm not totally sure. Maybe i pulled it?
I got it from the tow rope, i know that for sure.
So maybe it's just a way of using the bicep that i'm not used to? Does that sound right?

Sounds like overcharging of muscles (don't know the english word, google says myalgia, you might know that? When it's really bad, it can hurt like hell... If it is: Try to keep it moving, not heavy but don't keep it still, you might want to stretch it a little but that's pretty hard at your biceps I think...

Will be gone in a week I think

Thanks. If i'm pulling with it or overextending it hurts/gets sore.
It began last week or so when i went pretty much only on the run that used the tow rope.
Hope that information adds something useful.

I'm pretty sure it was just over used. It will go away in like 3 days. Take a lot of protein and it'll heal quick.

All you did was over work it. It wasn't used to being used all day for pulling you along on the tow rope so the muscle fibers broke down through use. Rest it, consume protein and in a few days it'll be back to normal and even a little stronger. Use promotes growth! The reason it's sore is because when the fibers broke down, lactic acid has built up and that's what causes the soreness.
