Race to Recovery: Post Marathon Infographic

These post-race recovery recommendations are from performance and rehabilitation experts from HSS who help competitive runners and everyday athletes run their best. Stretching your calves, hamstrings, hip flexors and IT bands after your race can help prevent and reduce soreness the days after your race. Refueling and hydrating should be done immediately afterwards, but solid foods can be difficult to digest. Our experts suggest slowly introducing foods and eating small meals as tolerated.

This is one of many infographics and resources from our Running Treatments and Conditions section.
