So it seems to me that fish oil *before* a workout would interfere with this recovery process.

I know that *after* 2 hours of a workout, THEN it's OK to take the fish oil.
I don't time my fish oil. I usually take it 1st thing in the morning, with all my other pills (glucosamin, vitamin, arginine). The only pill I time is magnesium, if I take it. That's always before bed when I do.
