March 3rd: Recovery…

epsom salt

I must day that I am very, very, VERY grateful for Epsom salts and Advil…

I had never soaked in Epsom salts before yesterday and I am now a true believer in their amazing effectiveness.  Immediately after leaving the after party, my sister and I stopped at the drug store to buy a bag.

We took some Advil before hopping in the shower, filled each of our bathtubs with warm water and the salt and soaked for about 20 minutes each.  It was great waking up on Monday morning and not have to limp all the way to my car to drive home…. 

Here are some other great links to articles with tips on how to recovery after a long run or a race:
