Post Run Essentials

October 4th, 2009 · 2 Comments

The best part of trail running is the DIRT. Love climbing hills, then descending different hills only to come home with seriously dirty legs. In cycling, if you come home with grease stains on your leg, we’d call you a “FRED”. But, if you come home with muddy legs, it’s a badge of honor.



There are two types of products that I am aware of that will essentially do the same thing. Designed to be “showerless” body cleaners. The first is Rocket Shower. It comes in a spray bottle and it’s designed to be the shower that you don’t have. Simply spray it on then wipe it off. Can be used for the bike commuter, or the hurry-up lunchtime workout….you name it! The second product is Martha Van’s Action Wipes. I featured them here a year ago and we have since repurchased and have really enjoyed using them. These wipes are 200% better than a baby wipe, they smell better and one wipe can completely clean you up. Love them. If you’re a bike commuter, like my husband, he prefers Rocket Shower upon arrival at work because it resembles a shower. However, if you’re out running in the mountains and have an hour drive home, then, I prefer the Action Wipes. One wipe can cover your whole body two times through, it smells fantastic and it really makes me feel refreshed post run.


My favorite is Hammer Nutrition’s Recoverrite. It has the potential to positively impact your delayed onset muscle soreness and has lots of other benefits that you can read about here. It is pricey, so I save it for the big workouts or long runs.

Anybody have one you could recommend?

What is your favorite product or post-run essential?

It is best that you have the perfect triathlon training schedule to be more effective.

    This is very good motivation to start the year off right. I really need to lose excess weight. I am at the very least 50 pounds over weight and its driving me crazy.
