  1. This is the cutest picture! This defines how awesome it is to be a kid you can just fall asleep anywhere. Something I've done before is taken baths with Epsom salt not sure if it really helps but I've always felt better after.

  4. Crazy recovery trick?
    When I'm sore from a workout, to recover I work out again.

  6. Good Morning.....love the picture! My husband tells me that's what I look like when I'm the passenger in the car! haaaaaa As long as I am moving I'm good but the minute I sit down.......I'm history! :-)

    I agree with everyone else...epson salt bath is always good. Sometimes just keep moving helps!

    Be safe on the roads if you have to get out today.

    Go Team Strong!!

  7. the craziest recovery trick I know is to use a rolling pin on my quads post workout while I sit on the couch and whine about being sore!
    The roads are a bit treacherous out there, please be careful this morning if you have to go anywhere...I was expected at work at normal time this morning, darn Ohio based company don't have snow days!
    Stay warm, stay paleo, stay strong...

  8. I mentioned my favorite recovery yesterday- cryotherapy! It's a bit expensive so I only do it after long training runs or after a week of hard workouts. When I can't do that, I spend a few minutes in the evening laying on the floor with my legs up the wall or I hold headstand or shoulderstand as long as I can. Restorative yoga poses work wonders!

    While I love headstand, I can't do handstands. It's actually been a goal of mine for years but I think fear of falling is keeping me from reaching that goal. I'm going to attempt a modified version of today's workout. Since I can't do handstands, that will be the toughest move for me.

  9. I've done Ice bath or as Anabel said cryotherapy. I would do it for my knees only, then worked my way up to my whole body. It reduces inflammation and and stiffness in the muscles. It's not for everyone though, and it can be dangerous. I think it's more mental. Some of you got the idea with the ice bucket challenges last summer.

    Team D as in Dedication!

  10. I love a really hot Epsom salt bath. My bubble bath has eucalytus too, and it's very relaxing. I can tell a huge difference when I use it post WOD. Today I'm going to just enjoy the day off ad try not to stress about all the work I should be getting accomplished at school. Lots of stretching and foam rolling to get ready for 15.2!!!!!

  11. Oh, and soaking in hot tub with eucalyptus.

  12. I shared a little bit of mine earlier in the week, but here is the full version of my all-time favorite active recovery routine. Light 1500m swim, 15 minutes in the jacuzzi, then a cold plunge (or cold shower). I tried this out around the first week of the challenge and I felt like I was in my 20's again, if only for a moment. LOL. I highly recommend it! Team Determined!

  16. Massage is one of my favorite recovery tricks! It helps get rid of the lactic acid build up and aids in muscle and tendon rebuilding.

  22. I slept on the floor a lot as a child (not by choice), but I actually love sleeping on the floor now from time to time. My favorite recovery trick is a massage and stretching!

  26. For me, well, it's more like an active recovery. I like playing dance dance revolution or dance central. It's a good change in motion and I get a good stretch everywhere. I have flat feet and tight calves so dance dance revolution helps with that (I have a 6in thick DDR pad with elevated arrows for support...yea, it's that serious). Afterwards I cool down with downwards dogs alternation leg stretches and do some mobility stretches with for my feet.

  29. I like to take hot baths. But I do have to say, scheduling a massage on a day with back squats & good mornings was a good idea!!!
