This post idea came to my mind when I was quite exhausted of my weekend which consisted of three football games in consecutive days. As I wanted to improve my recovery, I went for an evening swim in a cold lake. Side note, this was in early June so the water was quite cold. First it wasn’t quite tempting to swim in a 13 degree lake but after I rose from the water it felt SO good. My body didn’t ache anymore and I truly felt empowered! Therefore this is my tip for you how to recover from a hard workout:
Swim in a cold lake!
Or if this isn’t possible for you take a really cold shower or a bath. I guarantee you that after the first shock you will feel amazing!!
