Erika from MCM Mama Runs, Marcia from Marcia's Healthy Slice and Patty from No-Guilt Life.This week's topic is Post Run Experiences.
When it comes to post run, I am pretty simple as I focus on FOOD! As soon as I'm done, I want to eat! I often have food prepped and my recovery drinks ready before I head out, so as soon as I walk in the door, I am ready!
I usually strip down out of my sweaty clothes, set my electronics to charge and head right to the food. As I'm eating I'm often doing light stretches. As soon as I'm done, I head to shower. Oftentimes I will brush my hair but wash it later than evening after a nap.
After races it isn't much different. I like to grab my race bag, grab the baby wipes and cleanup and then take medal pictures. Once my pics are done, I'll take off props, layers, and shoes and put on a dry shirt and flip flops. I also eat some snacks and relax for a bit before heading back to the hotel to shower. Once at the hotel, I'll charge electronics, strip off my sweaty clothes and hop in the shower. Oh and there is usually a celebratory alcoholic beverage (or 3!) at some point as well.
How about you? What do you usually do after your runs?
