I've upped my mileage (I can't believe I am actually writing this...Eric's training really works!).. and could use some wise words of wisdom for recovering afterwards.
What are the techniques you use, foods you eat etc. that work well for you?
After yesterday's run I felt like I had the flu for a few hours..everything hurt and I became really stiff. After the run I had 16oz of water with NUUN tablets and also made sure I had an Odwalla Super protein drink. I think I got some relief once I took some advil...but I'm not big on popping pills
Thanks for sharing...
Foam rolling always works for me. That, the NUUN and protein should do the trick, I have read where compression helps as well, so maybe you can get some use out of those compression tights you bought. :-)
