Make shift portable ice baths...

Doing 5 mara in 5 day end of June, all start 6pm.  Recovery obv..massively important and was wondering if I could somehow give.myself a quick ice bath (never ever used one before) after the race on location using everyday equipment...only need to get my legs in.

    I couple of races I've been to have had ice tanks - otherwise, ice packs maybe?

    Have a look at the inflatable compression systems made by Air Relax and Normatec. I have the Air Relax system and it's excellent, although not cheap.
  • I once had to have a cold bath thanks to an old school B&B.  (no hot water in the day).
    Best recovery I had after a race. 

    I've seen people use wheely bins before - but I'd think a cold bath would be enough.  I don't fancy ice.

    Good luck with it.
