    Post run foods

    Is it true that what you eat post run actually affects your recovery? I know that it'd be a bad idea to eat a box of cookies after a hard 5k, but does it really make a difference to feeling well enough to run later if you choose a sandwich over a recovery powerbar?
    Also, what do you like to eat post run? For me it's a yogurt with candies in it

    After workouts you should be replenishing glycogen storage. You should be eating carbs and some protein between 30 minutes and 2 hours after exercise.

    What ever is easy to make or is already made. Sometimes I'll make a protein shake.

    A good carb : protein ratio helps. you should also eat within 30 minutes of running and I believe vitamin c helps too.

    That made me lol.

    I have a weight loss shake, chocolate milk if we are out of those. They both have a 4:1 carb to protein ration, and it has been shown to speed recovery.

    I'm never hungry after I race, I'm usually so sick. But, after my first invitational, I had medealed and had to wait ALL day for the rest of the races(mine was first out of around 12), so the only thing I had to eat was cupcakes and munchkins! Lol.
