- Once your breathing is under control put on your sweats, and start a slow jog. Do not run or walk; just find a nice comfortable pace and jog for about 10-20 minutes depending on the race.
- After jogging some light stretching of the tight muscles. Starting out by doing some light dynamic stretching followed by some light static stretching.
- Ice if needed. After a race if the muscles are going past the point of sore on to painful then apply ice to area, but not without the athletic trainers permission.
