Advice for masters runners

The other day someone pointed me to the following post from Coach C on<br><br>
To me this advice rang true, even though I am not a speedster of the sort the coach is talking about.<br><br>
I couldn't find an article with the right title, but I think this is the article the coach was referring to:<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>
What other advice would you give to masters runners?<br><br>
Speaking of advice, how is the <i>Women Masters Training Manual</i> coming along? I think it is such a cool idea, and you ladies are a perfect group to get it going.

I'm a big believer in icing, and ice baths in particular.<br><br>
CR animal hermosaboy says three keys to his durability are:
<ul><li>morning recovery or shake-out runs (when running 2x/day)</li>
<li>ice baths after hard or long runs</li>
<li>using the foam roller multiple times per week</li>
I haven't tried running 2x/day yet. Askeert.
I ran 15 today and took an ice bath. I agree with mariposai that after an effort of 2 hours or more, your body will thank you for it. Put on a sweatshirt, get a cup of hot chocolate, and the latest <i>Running Times</i>. It will be fun.
