Protein Supplements

Posted: 11/03/2014 at 18:38

I worked with a group of dietitian one of which worked with endurance athlete, her advice was to use milk after a work out. There were 2 reasons, firstly studies had shown that it had a better hydrating capability than sports drinks particularly if the effect was measured over several hours rather than just 30mins. Secondly is a good source of protein and carbs (if its a big work out use Nesquik to up the carbs).

More recently I had a consultation with a dietitian and she reviewed my intake at close to my IM peak training (6hr bike sessions etc) she suggested adding skimmed milk powder to my chocolate milk (and/or white coffee) to increase both the protein and carb hit with out extra volume. You don't need to be shy of carbs if your training 15-20hrs a week so enjoy the opportunity.

Pirate spotting

LOOTW - I was the Pirate at Grafham on the weekend. Were you racing too? Hoffmeister introduced himself at the start, a pirate awaiting yellow and black uniform. Gave him a shout as he did the longer distance, i saw him on the run and again once I'd finished the bike.

I managed to finish the very wind sprint distance in 1:25 despite a nasty cold. How did you do? How local are you? I'll be back up there for the Grafman Half in June and maybe one of the short distance ones prior to that.

Thanks chaps for the advice, I'm going to get on the case and try and remove it, if it doesn't work I'll send it to the LBS and let them have a go. I'll give it a gentle fine sanding and Vas sounds like a good idea.

Any other thoughts on reversing it once out or getting a different post designed to be reversed?

Popsider, below is a pic of the seat post. Its going to be a job to get it out even turning it took quite a lot of effort. If I can turn it round and use it what should I do to it before re inserting it to stop it sticking in the future?

Went out for 2 hours today and found the more toe down position quite comfortable along with the lower front end. I was much more on the nose of the saddle and felt more powerful in the TT position. It did make my quads a ache a bit more than normal.
