Donating blood?

Recently I decided to start donating blood again after a few years of not doing it, as there is a real shortage of my blood type. Went and donated with my gf yesterday, and this morning when doing my regular commute/morning intervalls the legs felt like bricks. I attribute this to the loss of blood and fluid from donating.
Now I’m probably going to dial back all my workouts for 2-3 weeks so I don’t start overtraining. I know from experience that my recovery will be alot slower after donating blood.

What I’m wondering is if anyone has any tips or tricks to help the recovery process after donating blood?
