Default Do your thighs feel bigger after a cardio workout?

My thighs always feel bigger after the elliptical, and last night I noticed it after Zumba! also...does anyone else ever feel this?

A little and I notice a weight gain the next day when I've done a lot of walking. I gained 3 pounds from yesterday to today. Yesterday I was forced to walk almost 10 miles so I'm relatively sure it's water gain from muscle recovery. I'm just drinking a lot of water today to counteract the effects.
