After not taking a rest day the day after a long run, my hip went psycho on me. I had only a few days to recover before my Women Rock MN Half Marathon, so I had to think quickly. Three ice baths were in order, and they did the trick. Believe it or not, they aren't half bad. The worst part is getting your feet in. After that, just hold a cup of tea and read a good book, and the time goes by quickly.
