Recovery drink right after the runRight after today's 31,3 km run, I have a 1/2 l of a recovery drink + 1/4 l of a protein recovery drink, both from German brand Sanct Bernhard Sport (Activ3).
The protein drink actually tastes terrible, but the effect is quite remarkable and I feel (or believe I do so) an immediate positive impact on my tired muscles.
The recovery drink on the other hand tastes delicious.
By the way: A drink with lots of sugger right after a long or intense training session is counterproductive. The sugger slows down/reduces the ability of your muscles to recover.
Having "sugger water" during a run alternated with salty drinks are fine. But not right after a run.
Breakfast - the real dealAfter the recovery drinks and a shower, a delicious breakfast is on the menue.
Today: Omelette with gorgonzola (or blue cheese), bacon, bananas and tomatoes.
It might sound weird, but it tastes delicious (or "lekker" how it's called in South Africa).

That's a nice portion of protein, some vitamins and salt (that's how I excuse the bacon ;)
This portion is sufficient for 2 (at least for my wife and me).
Breakfast part 2Well, after such a long run, kind of a little sin should be acceptable...
No worries, I did NOT consume the whole 1kg Nutella jug ;)
