I find that taking lots of small breaks to let the lactic acid in the legs disperse is best.. A camera is a great excuse to stop for a bit, get some deeeep breaths in. Some dynamic stretching beforehand (save the static stuff for after). Gatorade is great for not bonking, not so great for electrolites, get Nuun tabs for that.
Aspirin or some other NSAA before bed, lots of fluids, elevate the legs a bit if you can, did I mention stretching?
There really is so better way to condition yourself for hikes than hiking.
