    I like to take cold showers after running because it cools down the body temperature and it makes you feel better

    Walk until your heart rate comes down, then stretch. The temp of your shower is personal preference. It's not going to effect your performance in the future either way. If you are experiencing inflammation, cold helps reduce it. If you need to increase circulation, you need heat.

    Cold as it helps bring down inflammation and helps prevent delayed onset muscle soreness. Hot showers in the days that follow increase blood flow and help heal the muscles from the results of the tiny little tears that occur in them.
