Well you wanna relieve the swelling and inflammation after a hard workout so icepacks are good for that. You can then use massage to increase circulation. As for those knots, google up myofascial release. I play around at myofascial release on my back with a backnobber and I use a stick and a foam roller for my legs.

But truth is like WarrenG probably knows, nothing like a good massage done professionally. You can go to a massage school and get a student massage, half price most of the time and well worth it. Otherwise you can try and sneak in those free 10 minute massages at big events like marathons and charity bike rides.
