Athletech Round-Up: Best Recovery Products for Marathon Season

People running a marathon
With some of the world’s largest marathons occurring this month, Athletech News rounded up some great recovery products to bounce back from 26.2

Marathon recovery is no small feat. Research has shown that it takes seven to 10 days to fully recover from the cellular damage sustained during a marathon. Even when runners’ muscles have recovered, tendons and soft tissues usually take even long to get back to normal. Running coaches recommend starting the recovery process right after the race, and suggestions run the gamut from self-massaging to refueling with supplements. Athletech News rounded up five great marathon recovery tools that can be done from the comfort of runners’ homes.

Best for Joint Recovery: Momentous Collagen Shot
