There have been debates here there and everywhere lately about the possible benefits of Epsom salts. A dear friend tried them and they MADE ME get some ( I HATE baths BUT I am not one to close the door on any opportunity for progression!!). Me being me, I got the super family sized tub ( 5 kilos) and planned my dip post 20 miles on Sunday ( to get maximum opportunity for a result).
I put in 3 cup fulls ( as instructed on the tub) and soaked. I loved it as there was no bubbles or smell ( I hate fancy pants bath products) but a bit of buoyancy. I felt no different afterwards.
Normally Im really stiff post big one the next day, and I struggle to get going on a morning. I was ABSOLUTELY FINE. I can honestly say that my muscles all felt lovely. I knew I had run but in a nice way. I did a 5k this morning as a recovery run and that too was gorgeous. I am in shock that something so simple can make such a huge difference!!
Verdict: These salts are fu***** amazing and you should GET SOME.

Happy salty panthering
