Tips to Recover Quickly from DOMS

Tips to Recover Quickly from DOMS

A lot of training or taking part in many running events may lead you to feeling bruised for days. How to speed up recovery from DOMS?

Post-race soreness, or delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), isn’t an injury but the muscles’ response to exercise. It may take several days to recover, or longer after endurance events.

What can I do when feeling DOMS?

Try daily low-intensity swimming, pilates or light cardio workouts. Massage or heat can also help. But avoid high-intensity training, hill work or resistance training.
