Alanis Morissette in January 2010 Issue of Runner's World

Speak Up: How Do You Relax After a Workout?

Alanis Morissette has turned into a serious running junkie, competing in not one, but two marathons this season. In the January issue of Runner's World, the Grammy-award winning singer shares that running has become a lifestyle and credits it for making her healthier and happier.

After running the singer says she takes an ice bath — yowza! The frigid baths help calm the inflammation that results from a long run: "They say for every mile you should be a minute in ice, so I've been doing that. It's not too pleasant, but you get used to it. It's quick. In and out."

Besides ice baths, Morissette is a big fan of napping after her workouts. She likes to load up on a high glycemic meal and spend an hour knocked out on one of her many futons.

What's your favorite way to relax after a long workout?
