okay, this may sound weird, but has anyone noticed different effects whether they shower hot or cold after a swim?
i used to have a hot shower after swimming to rinse off the chlorine, and even when i still felt fit in the pool and able to do a few more laps, after the hot shower and 10 min bike ride home i used to feel like my legs wouldn't carry me up to my 3rd floor flat.
recently i have finished off my hot shower with a cold shower, and i have been feeling much fitter after my swims. i'm wondering if that is my overall improved fitness or if it is the cold shower.
not that it really matters that much, but i got curious about this one.
