Stay off those icy legs
Icing may do more harm than good if you don't give your legs the rest they need. Icing a sore muscle will numb pain, allowing you to run on leg muscles that should be too painful to move, causing even more damage, according to research published in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine, Science, and Sports.
Potassium lowers blood pressure
Sufficient potassium, about 1,600 milligrams per day, may be all you need to lower your blood pressure. You can easily get that much by starting the day with a glass of orange juice (490 mg of potassium), eating a banana at lunch (450 mg) and a baked potato at dinner (840 mg).
