I take a zero tab after a long run and i take a whey protein mixed with maltodextrin. I then eat a lot of sugar!
I have read and been told that after a hard session there is this window of opportunity of about an hour where you can stuff your face with cakes or anything and your body will make good of it. If you watch anything on footballers etc, immediately after a match they eat things like muffins to get the electrolytes and sugars back in.
thanks for that!! though in my defence i did actually google it myself, I just couldnt seem to find the correct search terms for the item and so drew a blank.
Someone posted on facebook the other day 'does anyone know when mothers day is'? If i knew them a bit better i'd have queried why they had no access to a search engine if clearly able to get on the internet!!
Toe now feels nasty. Just went for a 4 mile recovery run and it really stung. Keep a bag of frozen peas in work so sat with it on ice.
TR- I do love 'work from home' days once the initial panic first thing has settled downa s to who's turn it is to stay home etc! Enjoy the fine ales! Out of interest, what sort of time were you originally after? about 2.45?
there are some on the p and d thread that are a bit broken, however they are completely ignoring the easy parts of the schedule or the pace guidance. I think if you do as it says, certainly on the 55 mile schedule its a reasonable load.
wjh- I always think a decent rugby international is worth the day out anyway regardless of whats riding on the game so just enjoy the atmosphere etc.
