Skin Care for Athletes: Tri-Body Recovery Wash

My calves were sore as heck after my previous marathon.  They were so tender, particularly the one that buckled, that I couldn't even stand the thought of foam-rolling it.


Luckily, I had a sample of this Tri-Body Recovery Wash from the Skin Care for Athletes line, which as you can guess by the name, makes organic/natural skin care products for athletes.

I don't know why I don't do more bath-related things to relax me, since I'm a big fan of bath bombs and lotions and such and am often stressed from work (and formerly, school).  I tried the whole ice bath thing a couple of times with just a tray of ice cubes (I can't bear to "waste" a bunch of perfectly-good ice!), which obviously wasn't all that helpful.

Anyway, this gel helped a lot.  I lathered this up in the shower and paid special attention to my calves.  That evening, I suddenly felt SO much better -- less sore and stiff.  That's pretty unusual to suddenly feel recovered in the middle of the day like that... most of my recovery gains occur over a nice snooze.

Anyway, this might be a great gift idea for the athlete in your life (even if that's yourself!)... no ice bath needed.

  1. I refuse to buy bath stuff. I am a coupon clipper and always find goods at Walgreens for free.
    I'm all for trying new stuff and I'm so glad this made you feel better :)
