What's your favorite atypical recovery method? (Read 218 times)

    I second the hot shower.  I make it as spa-like as I can.  I also enjoy hot peppermint Epsom salt foot soaks.  And gardening. Something about running and then working in the garden makes me feel so grounded and content.

        A beer shower has to be costly!!!

            I've got a fever...

              Shower Beer is indeed my favorite, but I did come up with a new one recently.  The idea is to do the following things simultaneously:

              1. Stand with lower leg in a 5-gallon bucket of ice water (alternate legs every five minutes or so)
              2. hold an ice pack on left knee 
              3. Hold ice frozen into a dixie cup against right hamstring
              4. Watch video on iPad ( The show was "Angie Tribeca", a TBS comedy.  It's Airplane/Naked Gun-type humor)
              5. Do all of the above buck naked (not counting the scuba boots keeping my feet from getting too cold.

              On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

                      Sounds like a lot of work, frozen Dixie cup on hamstring, ice pack on left knee, whilst standing in a bucket of freezing cold water, AND watching a porno on my iPad. I prefer a 6'er of something micro brewed and bowl of green.
