My Post Hard Run Routine


I do 2-3 hard or long runs each week and have a fairly consistent routine that takes place after each one.

First I hit the fridge and drink some water or milk. I’m a fan of post workout milk since it’s just easier than a protein powder. Fairlife milk is my favorite due to their farming and environmental practices. I’ll often blend someĀ VEGA protein powder into chocolate soy milk, too.

Next, I’ll do a general strength & mobility routine, duration based on time availability and how hard the run was.

Then, I will usually take a shower. Once in a while, I’ll do a hot water immersion after a long run. I do try to keep these hot baths to after easy / shorter runs to limit hydration loss, but sometimes a warm bath after a hard run feels good!
