Cold Water Immersion Studies

These are very popular with several of my athletes, so I found these studies interesting. You can see the findings are very individual. My N +1 is I find it exceptional after hard running for the lower legs, which typically sustain the most injuries.

This second link outlines strategies and protocols. Some times NOT taking CWI is a better path, if one has time to recover.Also note the short intervals suggested for CWI. For those of you racing on a short turnaround, these strategies might be very advantageous. Try this in your next hard race simulation block and see if it works for you.
