Practice some deep breathing to bring your heart rate back to normal. Stretch and roll out your lats and glutes, and pecs. A great pec stretch is to place your entire forearm on a doorframe with your upper-arm extending perpendicularly to your body. Then lean into your arm and look away from the hand that's on the door frame.
