As my mileage is now clocking up I suspect I should take more notice of recovery nutrition. After my long run should I be drinking something like a powerade or lucozade drink even if I am necking a bottle (and some energy gels) during the run
Why is it that one day I will go out for a plod and find my legs are tired very quickly and other days I feel like I can run on forever (well not FOREVER but you get the gist)? It's how it happens unfortunately. I used to think it was down to sleep/recovery
, too. Busy weekend, with three runs (recovery, threshold and hills) on Saturday and a long run on Sunday, plus talks on nutrition, kit, stretching, massage, tapering, etc. In Forest of Dean - lovely runs through woods. Good to meet like-minded people
Half heard that sports nutrition (powders etc) is now going to have VAT payable on it (in line with sports drinks)Assume that means a 20% increase on Rego, PSP etc - maybe from 18:00hrs tonight.Anyone else confirm? Just checked the full budget
Hello everyone,Can anyone recommend an effective low calorie recovery drink ?I'm trying to find a balance by having correct recovery nutrition after long runs but without a high calorie content as I want (need) to burn off weight.Thanks skimmed milk
?I generally have beans on toast when I get back from training. Dependent on time of day and what you've done versus how long before sleep. All will be contributing factors but get it down as soon as possible after the run for optimal recovery. Stacks of stuff
