Post half marathon recovery (Read 1688 times)

    I'm looking for some recommendations for post-marathon recovery... and I'm mostly talking about the nice, girly stuff- like the best lotions and creams you use to massage your sore muscles, bath soaks, body scrubs, etc.  I already know all about the tapering and resting, but now I'm looking for some beautifying recovery.  I know a lot of people break out after running, get dry, cracked skin from the harsh wind, sun burns, etc., so I'm just looking for some ideas and products to try.  Thanks!

        Maybe I've been doing it wrong. I just use soap.

          Drop the soap and try body wash and a loofah.  Works for me.

            Drop the soap!

             

              I literally don't care that I use the word literally incorrectly.

                Don't you sometimes wonder what's lurking in your loofah? I'm old-fashioned. Gimme a washcloth.

                  No, but my wife gets grossed out.  She changes hers pretty regularly and I keep mine for year.  I usually get a new one in my stocking at Christmas.

                    Hmm...and which of you recovers more quickly after a half marathon? If she's a runner, that is.

                      Loofah your stretch marks.

                      The kiss goodnight, it comes with me,
                      Both wrong and right, our memories. 
                      The whispering before we sleep,
                      Just one more thing that you can't keep.

                      Our favorite place we used to go,
                      The warm embrace that no one knows.
                      The lovin' look that's left your eyes,
                      But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.

                            Some people here seem to prefer all these weird locally brewed ales and whatnot...

                             

                            Is that what you mean by recovery?

                            It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
