I got in a hot tub of water and soaked for about 45 minutes. I added 2 Advil to my recovery efforts as well.
When I got out, I got really light headed.
No need to push it now; I layed on the bed until I felt better. It is funny when you are so tried you can barely hold your eyes open.
After a short time I felt a lot better and could put this entry in my blog. It also helped to eat and drink. I was probably a little dehydrated after the race. It is important to continue taking in fluids even thou you have stopped running.
