I was wondering what the consensus was re the benefits of an ice bath after a long run. Personally I'm a convert, but the problem is that I can't warm up afterwards - my core temperature plummets and it can take up to 2 hours to warm up again. I've tried layer upon layer of clothing, virtually setting myself on fire by sitting too close to my 'living flame' gas fire (nowhere near as good as the real thing) and blasting myself with my hairdryer. Nowt works.
I've been reluctant to have a hot bath after an ice bath on the advice of a soft tissue therapist - but a friend recently said that he always has a hot bath after his ice bath.
Ant thoughts guys?
