Lactic acid goes away once oxygen is returned to the system and will not cause pain, it simply stops the muscles from contracting.
Back to the OP; the cause for your lack of pain may be that your simply not focusing on the eccentric phase of the movement, whereas on holiday you were, perhaps. The same principle works if I were squatting them decided to go for a run after; it wouldnt affect my gains so long as I continued to eat in calorie excess, which is hard on high volume, high intensity days but can be done.
