Baths...a runner's BEST friend
There is nothing I look forward to more after my long runs than a long hot bath. I am convinced that my recovery time is cut in half by the mere fact that I do this every week. Another thing I do to help with recovery is wear my leg compression sleeves after my runs and it feels awesome to have this slightly snug fabric around my lower leg. If I had a particularly grueling run I will heat up my rice-in-a sock bag in the microwave for 1.5 minutes and place it on any part that hurts before I go to bed for 10-20 minutes. So far, I can boast no injuries in my running journey. What do you do to heal faster after (or before) long runs?
