KMB: Recovering Mo’s Butt at CryoStudios

By Monica Brant – June 25, 2012

Along with my new intense track program, my coach has laid out an equally intense recovery program that includes many ice baths per week. Ice baths are great but do take up quite a bit of time from picking up 30 pounds of ice, filling up the tub, sitting in the ice for at least 20 minutes, and then thawing out, which can take up to two hours depending on how cold I end up. Sometimes, it’s hard enough to walk afterwards with ice-cold, numb legs and feet, so I can never take an ice bath too close to an extreme event. While cold therapy definitely helps my recovery process and is necessary, the time it takes as well as the timing of doing it becomes challenging.
