• Training tip – Recovery Meal

    Having the right meal soon after a high volume or high intensity workout will speed recovery. Eat a meal that’s about 4:1 carbohydrates to protein within 60 minutes of finishing your workout, and ideally within 30 minutes. This will help replace depleted muscle and liver glycogen stores, and you’ll feel better, faster. Waiting too long to eat will diminish the positive benefits.

    Some examples of what’s good to eat are: eggs and wheat toast, peanut butter and preserves on wheat toast, chocolate milk, salmon and a green vegetable of your choice, grilled chicken and sweet potatoes. Minimize fats and sugars in this meal, and don’t forget to continue hydrating.

    Train smart. Race fast.
