Get out of damp gear immediately.
Even if you didn’t sweat that much, worn or soggy clothing is an environment bacteria love to cling to, and it can also give you a deep chill that is hard to recover from.
Regardless of whether you can shower right away or not, change your clothes, socks, and shoes immediately to keep your muscles warm and loose.
This promotes good circulation, which aids the recovery process after a workout.
It always feels good to get out of sneakers after a tough workout, but be sure to put on a supportive pair of shoes or sandals if your legs or feet are feeling especially spent.
The muscles in your feet also get tired, so your post-workout shoes need to have adequate support.
