    Thanks Ben! I read something similar about tubbing last year. It's what made me stop. I'll see if I can find it and read it again b/c it has a lot more science about why the ice inhibits the results we want to achieve.

    I've seen some others in the past as well. Will be sure to post those if I come across them again. I think this one is a nice start to get the basic premise across.

    I stopped last year because I didn't like it. I usually do things that I think most people probably would disagree with. But hey, who's running the miles?

    I only do the ice bath occasionally (and typically only after a really long run). I didn't do one this last weekend as I really felt pretty good...even though it was a really long run. Interesting article.

    I never did ice baths for these kinds of reasons. I've avoided icing in general when things are just sore. Now when it involves injury (or is close to), then I'll ice quite a bit. This has me thinking about the rolling and compression too. I had already been using the socks less. Rolling I equate to massage, and they don't seem quite as sure of it. I've seen it brought up that if you need a whole bunch of recovery to make it through the day (like at work) then you're likely better off working out less.
