One of the most time efficient and pretty effective recovery tools Irecommend is the hot cold shower. You get in there and hang out in the warmth and relax for a bit, wash your hair, shave, lather, etc. Then you turn the dial to the coldest it will go and endure the shock for at least two minutes then you go back to hot and enjoy. If you do three cycles like this after a workout ending on cold you will recover better and be less sore. It is one of my stand by lazy recovery tricks...give it a try.
