Tiger Balm Red, £4.67 for 19g

Arm yourself with some heat rub for the days after your race and massage a few times a day into any sore spots. A little goes a long way, so opt for a pocket-sized tub of Tiger Balm Red (which has a pleasant cinnamon scent), or pick from a range of Deep Heat products including spray, patch and rub. 

Remember to use the RICE technique on any more serious injuries or aches.
