1. I’m with you on most of these, but I’ve never done an ice bath. Maybe because at the peak of my training last year I was only doing 30 miles a week; this year I’ve dialed it back a bit from there.

    And I started a decade later than you . . .

      I only do the ice baths after really long run (long to me, that is). 10+ miles. I start with room temp water, then get in and make it colder. Not my favorite part of running, but they do help!

      I usually do the ice bath for 10+ miles. Even if it’s just for a few minutes (that’s about all I can take). And I just sit in the tub and fill it until it covers my legs. I keep a shirt on in the tub and drink a cup of coffee. It helps!

    Those are all great. The stick works amazingly well on tight calves. I really ought to use mine more but I hate to admit that I only break it out when I’ve got an injury threatening!

  3. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!
    Very useful info specially the last part 🙂 I care for such information much.

    I was seeking this particular info for a long time.
    Thank you and good luck.
