  • Nutrition
  • Supplements

  • Ice/Warm Bath
  • Any other tip you've found helpful

I try to spend time on my feet walking around, and have a drink.

That's it.

Stretching, walking, water. I also find it's easier to prevent soreness by paying strict attention to not pushing harder in training than my fitness will allow.

Stretching and then recovery compression tights. I used to sit in my pool during the winter, but my ZOOT tights work just as well without all the shrinkage.

I really only do this for long bikes and especially long runs (and races).

Proper cool-down, at least 5 min long, considerably longer dep/up mileage/hours.

Protein+quick-carb snack. Choco milk is a fave. Yogurt drink. PowerBar if I'm desperate.

ICE or COLDWATER BATH. 20 min if I can stand it.

Then a nice balanced meal. Or a pig out fest if I feel like it.

Sometimes I like to lie on the floor with my legs up on a wall. Seems to make them feel better.

Next day, I do light walking/swimming/super easy bike for 30 min or so.
