A little different approach, but a BIG help is an ice BATH. It may sound a little strange, but you get out and your legs feel like a million bucks. Here's what you do:

1) Go to the store and get one of those big bags of ice, and a small bag to use. (If you like doing this, you can freeze water bottles and milk cartons in the freezer for ice and chop them up to use them- less expensive).

2) Fill your bath tub up with cold water so that when you sit down in the tub, the water level is at your belly button.

3) Throw ice into the tub and wait about 3 minutes, then jump in. Wear a pair of briefs in the tub so your boys don't get too too cold (don't wear swim trunks or shorts since you want your legs in direct contact with the water). Throw the little bag of ice in when the remains of the big bag start to melt away.

I'll be the first to tell you, when you first get in, it SUCKS. But after 5-8 minutes, you'll be fine. Sit in the tub for 15-20 minutes. You will get out and after about 5-10 minutes, you'll feel like a million bucks. I guarantee it.
