I know I know... 3 years later... I don't care
I just came back from a 16-mile run. Since I don't really know much about running theory, I had to look up info about whether to eat after running or not on the net. I found your forum... helped me a lot, thanks a lot!
I decided to eat a bunch of stuff. I had a big bowl of cereal with milk, a cup of hot milk chocolate with marshmallows, and a full glass of apple juice (Couldn't find any fruits/vegetables ). My stomach is huuuuuurting now, but I'm pretty confident that it will, as you say, refuel my muscles. They sure felt tired after the run.
I'll post how I felt after tonight later on to share my full experience.
But what if you need to loose a few pounds ? and only exercise every other day so you dont need to refuel so quickly. Surely it would be best not to eat after a run ?
Any thoughts ?
