Actress Ashley Greene might be running her first 10k this weekend (the Oakley NYMini) in Central Park, but she’s no stranger to working up a sweat. In fact, when we asked Greene to weigh in on how she handles recovery after a hard training session, she gamely identified two key components: stretching and hydration.

Greene describers herself as “competitive and stubborn,” with an “I can do anything” attitude when it comes to fitness. But when it came to fighting regular pain and stiffness in her quad, due in part to an unfortunate femur break when she was 12 that created scar tissue, Greene, with the advice of her trainer, mandated regular stretching and the use of a roller. “Not stretching causes injuries and strain,” Greene says. “Pain and frustration are great motivators.” Three of Greene’s favorite post-workout stretches are aimed at areas that need the extra attention: opening her hip flexors and groin, her quads, and her calves. And as for that roller, the actress adds, “The roller is my best friend. It’s painful, but it guarantees that I’ll sleep better if I use it right before bed.”

Prior to race day, Greene knows to avoid foods that can dehydrate her, like asparagus, which the actress loves. “I’m a huge water advocate, but taking in too much water is actually a negative,” says Greene, who regularly keeps hydrated with coconut water and electrolyte drinks like Gatorade. On race day, her plan is to take advantage of the aid stations, keeping her thirst quenched as she runs.

Because having a good recovery plan is vital to an athlete’s success post-race, we connected with Kim Mueller, a full-time registered dietitian and board-certified specialist in sports dietetics (she does not work with Greene), and asked her to weigh in on some best practices for an active recovery. This is what she shared.
