Another thing which may have helped recovery was the cold shower. Every shower time I start off with hot then (if I remember) switch to cold and run the water over the legs for a time, front and back. This is particularly effective in Canberra's winter. My understanding though is that alternating hot/cold for up to seven times is more effective again. Seems a bit of a waste of water though. Plunge pools too are supposed to be more effective, because of water pressure. But I don't have access to one.
You get used to it!
Training at Acton Ferry Terminal this morning, and running between 10k and 20k, were Abi, Andy, Justine, Ewen, Kym, me, Ruth, Laura dlC, Thach, Suzi, Jennifer & Alain. Also Zainab & Riki who just missed us. And we saw Caroline run through as well. A very good turn-out, and so soon after some had run marathons or halves!
It was the wedding day for Ishara & Byron today. Byron ran with us a few times on Saturdays, last year.
