Ice Bath...

I took my first ice bath on Friday.  I cannot believe I have never taken one before.  After I eased myself into it, I found that it was not too bad other than my teeth were chattering.  I did find that it really helped and I was not sore the following day.  My husband kept telling me that I should be glad I am not a football player, since they will ice their entire bodies...ouch!!!

I took the ice bath after only running 10 miles.  I am anxious to see how it feels after a 15 or 18 mile run.  What is your experience with an ice bath?

I had an ice bath Monday. After the first minute or so, it's not too bad. : )
