So I tried an ice bath

It will probably be my first, and my last. The theory is that if you immerse your legs in ice water for 15 minutes or so, it will cause your blood vessels to contract (duh – something fierce!). Well, the benefit comes when you get out and the blood vessels relax causing a flushing of the toxins and lactic acid that has built up over several days of hard training. Nice theory.

I have to say, it did feel REALLY good after it was over, but I didn’t notice much difference on the bike. Oh, well.
