Austin Sports Medicine: Post-Race Recovery Tips from Medicine in Motion
Date:2/5/2013

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) February 05, 2013

6. Stretch. After a run, muscles are still warm and flexible – there’s no better time for a stretch … just don’t overdo it!

8. Ice packs/ice bath. An ice bath is an ideal way to reduce inflammation after a long run. If that doesn’t sound appealing, opt for ice packs on the spots that are the sorest.

9. Cross-train. A runn
