Recovery Foods

My favorite way to recover after a hard run is to plop on the couch with a bag of frosted animal cookies and re-watch the first 3 seasons of 'The Hills' for the quadrillionth time.

I have been getting REALLY sore after my runs and decided it is about time that I pay attention to a little thing called my nutrition. Billy did his research thing (remember he is the brains behind the operation) and came up with my new post run fuel.  Within 30 minutes of my workout I will have some chocolate milk (tasty and has the perfect ratio of carbs to proteins which is 4:1) with a scoop of Glutamine (non-essential amino acid that boosts recovery time and also boosts your immune system, we bought it at bodybuilding.com). I will let you know how it goes:)

This is a heck of a lot cheaper than other recovery drinks and who doesn't want chocolate milk at 7 a.m.  This will be even more motivation to finish my runs strong.

So, we have become addicted to running documentaries and watched 'Running Sahara' after school.  3 men run across the Sahara dessert in 111 days (over 4,000 miles) at some points they were running in temperatures of 140 degrees and wicked sandstorms.   Next time I start complaining about it getting a little stuffy in my running room I will picture them and feel a whole lot more comfortable.

Dinner was a random assortment of things.  Spinach salad with delicious homemade salsa and a egg/avocado/tomato/black bean panini. Party in my mouth.

Have I told you that I would marry avocado if I could.  It is a gift from the heaven's.  This reminds me, I need to go grab a quick spoonful of it before I go to bed.

After dinner Billy went and did his manly rock climbing thing and I went to my best friend since the 4th's grades house and did girly things like play with babies and eat chocolate.

This is Macey and she is the cutest thing in the world.

I have a confession to make.  I am legitimately afraid of losing my children in the future.  I lose everything you could imagine and sometimes I am so caught up into thinking about running and candy I forget what is going on around me and I get scared I will lose them.  I may or may not have left a student in the bathroom after a field trip once upon a time.  It was only for like three minutes but it added to my phobia.

IMG_4115.JPG

The bff knows me well and served me up some chocolate ice cream and a sugar cookie.  Nothing says I love you more than adding another 46 grams of sugar to my already 199 grams of sugar yesterday.  It was delicious.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

By the time I read your comments I will have finished the Bachelor episode (I am watching it while I run this morning).  WHAT DID YOU THINK????

-I will let you know in the afternoon but I have a feeling crazy head is going home.

Do you use any supplements or certain foods to help you recover faster?

Do you enjoy running documentaries or documentaries in general?

-YES, I love peaking into people's lives and feeling inspired to be better.

Favorite panini fillings?

-As long as there is avocado and cheese I am a happy camper.

Hey Girl! Chocolate milk is my choice recovery drink too! I don't add anything in it currently so I don't know run bazillions of miles but enough miles to train for half marathons :P

I love chocolate milk! That will definitely be a part of my recovery fuel, I think...

Let us know how that supplement works, I have also been feeling really sore lately. But that may just be because Im finally running again. Haha.

That dessert looks like heaven. Yum.

I love that you're buying stuff on bodybuilder.com...you're so huge! lol

Does The Office count as a documentary? If it does, then yes, I do enjoy documentaries!

The only thing I need in a panini is cheese...and maybe pesto

i might have to fight you for the avocado! lol. id marry it too! lol. love it!

i love chocolate milk. its great after a run. its chocolate deliciousness is awesome.
i also like coconut water. i dont know if u have tried it. but its also good. its delicious and nutritious. i have also used it during long runs. it does the job!

I *puffy heart* avocado! I eat it on everything! sandwiches, toast, salads, tacos, you name it! It's in my top 5 favorite foods.

I usually have a scoop of vanilla protein powder with 3-4oz of skim milk as a recovery drink. I also do the chocolate milk thing too!

One more...
I recently learned that V8 makes for a great recovery drink. or says my dad's running friend. I've tried it, not really a fan of the taste but it's certainly good for you!

I used whey protein and a recovery drink together. I'm drinking things like coconut milk and eating more walnuts etc. I wish I had the confidence to push my body harder.. I'm working on it.

Love running documentaries!!!!!!!

Girl I love you, all things chocolate belong in mah belly:) I always make a brendan brazier smoothie with bananas, dates, efa oil blend, protein powder, and dulse flakes. It sounds crazy craze but it is so good:)

Slash your friend is an angel, I love it when my friends feed me ice cream and cookies! Double slash I love babies, and do not worry I am scared that I will lose my chilluns too!

I lived on paninis when I was in France. LOVE. Tomatoes and cheese are the must haves. :)
Love documentaries--I'm entertained while I learn something new, what's not to love?
I take glucosamine for my joints, and a multivitamin, but that's it in terms of supplements.

That sandwich looks amazing. All parents have that legitimate fear, heck, I still do. Don't worry though, the second you find out you're expecting, your mind switches the way ti thinks, and your child naturally becomes your main priority. Trust me. I never expected to have a kiddo, and now that I do, I'm the most protective mom ever.

I've only ever seen Spirit of the Marathon and I'm pretty sure I could watch it a million times.

CHEESE belong in my panini, which then needs to be in my mouth asap!

hmmm I should probably pay more attention to what purpose exactly that I want my food to be doing for my body but I usually just eat what I want...hmm. I think its healthy most of the time anyways.

Avocados and cheese on a panini are the only way to go. Again, we are soulmates/twinnies. I want to watch some running documentaries to get me pumped up to run. I find that when I watch soccer while I'm running on the TM I can go all day. Its weird but I just like to pretend I'm in the game when I'm running around. I'm so used to that its easy.

MMM chocolate milk is a great choice! I always try to drink my milks after a run.

And The Bachelor-- I could not be happier that Michelle is gone! Wahooooo! Families next week?! I can't even wait! I'm definitely on Team Emily!

- I just take a multivitamin

- In the winter I just do protein shakes, but in the summer, after a real long ride or run on a hot day, I use watermelon and sprinkle salt on it, the only thing in the world I use salt on, try it, its great, water and replacing your salt, per scienctific but at the same time, taste soooooo great

Macey is so adorable, I can't even stand it! And chocolate milk = most delicious recovery drink ever

 
At February 16, 2011 at 7:35 AM , OpenID drkgood said...

I read that about the chocolate milk too and have been trying it a little. What I like is that it is easy to go down after a long run when my stomach is killing me and doesn't want to ingest anything. Other things I would drink are just a straight up protein shake or some recovery shake (that stuff is super expensive, so I save it for special occasions like a fine wine).

Everything is better in a panini and with cheese. In general, I don't love documentaries. But I do love documentaries about anyone who does something I love. It makes it more interesting when you already share a passion with the person.

Chocolate milk is best recovery drink ever! Thanks for stopping by my page yesterday and suggesting motivational books and movies. I went out and got Master Your Metabolism and so far its a good read...AND I left the house for work this AM with my gym bag so thats a good sign *big smile*

 
At February 16, 2011 at 7:37 AM , Blogger Emily said...

Chocolate milk was my favorite recovery food when I swam in college! It seriously works magic. You can feel your body just absorbing helpful nutrients as you guzzle the delicious chocolate. Mmmm.

And paninis? I'm with you on the avocado and cheese. I'm also a big nutella fan.

Now I'm hungry.

 
At February 16, 2011 at 7:39 AM , Blogger Meredith said...

Macey is too cute!

I've heard chocolate milk is great. I haven't tried it yet. I think I'm gonna try it Friday for my next long run. I've been experimenting with different things. The dreaded Green Monster smoothie - which is pretty good by the way, protein shake, GU recovery powder.

Let us know how the Glutamine works for you!!

I love running documentaries! I could watch Spirit of the Marathon over & over. It brings me to tears - weird I know.

I could eat almost anything on my panini. I'm not picky!

I loved the Sahara movie. Loved it. Any running documentary gets me motivated.

I like brie, ham and apricot jelly in my panini. I'm just crazy that way.

 
At February 16, 2011 at 7:49 AM , Blogger 5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Yep, perfect recovery drink!!!!!

I love pininininini's! Especially chicken with any kind of cheese!!!

I guess I should get on the running documentary bandwagon.

P.S. I am going to email you about your spinning instructor cert. I am in love...I want to become an instructor because I think I could give a kick booty workout!! =)

Chocolate milk...my favorite post race drink. I even drink it during some long ultras. The best recovery ever.

 
At February 16, 2011 at 7:54 AM , OpenID ihearteggs said...

Choc milk and glutamine is the perfect post run fuel for you!

I always have a protein shake and a 100cal bag of popcorn post workout... but I also take BCAA's and glutamine when I'm dieting, it helps prevent muscle loss and makes me *slightly* less sore!

... a panini needs a good condiment and cheese. The rest is just details!

I can't get over how emotional the women have been on The Bachelor this season--more than usual it seems to me!

After running, I usually eat toast with peanut butter and yogurt.

I love all the color in your dinner! I always try to load my panini or sandwiches with as many toppings as possible--the more the merry!

Giada DeLaurentis has a recipe for paninis with fresh mozzarella, basil, and raspberry jam! So good! I hate chocolate milk but I have read blueberries aid in recovery so I make sure to include those in some way. Not sure if they work though. Myoplex Lite strawberry cream protein shakes seem to work for me.

Chocolate milk is amazeballs! I love it so much.

I think that's a great recovery drink - nothing like some protein to soothe sore muscles!

 
At February 16, 2011 at 8:05 AM , Blogger Sara said...

Chocolate milk is awesome for recovery! My favorite panini has to be tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil. Add sundried tomatoes and garlic and it's even better.

 
At February 16, 2011 at 8:12 AM , Blogger Melissa said...

My Team in Training coaches said chocolate milk is a great recovery drink. Guess I need to buy some! I haven't watched the Bachelor yet. Still trying to get through last week's Biggest Loser first. My DVR looks like it may explode soon!

 
At February 16, 2011 at 8:15 AM , Blogger RunningOnCoffee said...

I try to follow that carb: protein ratio after long runs, but don't have anything specific that I go to. I had a big nonfat Starbucks Double Shot on Ice after my September half marathon, and a small bag of pretzels - does that count? It's protein and carbs :) I've read on runner's world that chocolate milk is one of the best recovery drinks! Bolthouse Farms makes some good bottled 'protein' drinks, but they are kinda pricey. I've also had Kashi bars or nut butter + bread after a long run.

No running documentaries yet.

Avocado is awesome, whenever possible. I also like a good 'caprese' panini-- mozz, tomato & pesto/basil.

i drink muscle milk as recovery, it's basically chocolate milk + protein. yummers.

The Bachelor----Good GOD I was happy Michelle was booted! That girl was PSYCHO!!! She gives the rest of us a bad name. Frankly, I think the producers are the ones that kept her around for that long and I think that Brad was legitaimately afraid of her in real life.

I am obsessed with avocado but strangely I used to hate them! After most long runs I just want two things: eggs and club soda. I'm an oddball, I know.

Chocolate milk after a long run tastes soooo good! It's something to look forward to and so much better than gatorade.

1. that baby is ADORABLE. do not lose her.
2. the bachelor was ridiculous. i laughed so hard when michelle was just LAYING there in the car. brad was like, "can i take your hand?" and she said, "umm... probably not." bahahahaha
3. if i have a panini, it will have cheese. that's about the only staple. spinach is a good one too, and then whatever else is around gets thrown in.
4. avocado is my favorite. if i fly to provo, can we have an avocado party? PLEASE?

Love running documentaries and paninis with cheese & tomato in them. Recover with chocolate milk as well and for some reason always like sauteed spinach after a long run as well. Weird :)

I definitely enjoy documentaries... obviously depending on the topic tho!

Black forest ham gruyere and Dijon mustard for panini

Docu: love them. Did you see waiting for superman? What did you think

Non fat choc milk for me. It works.

Bachelor. Did not like this one other then crazy head went home. The photoshoot was painful to watch and Brit's date also
Cannot wait for the women tell all!! That will be a good one!

I told Dorry I was going to write a love song/poem to the avocado. Feel free to submit some gushy words of love to add to the song. LOL. :)
A few years ago when I FIRST started running I read an article about a group of lady runners that traveled the Sahara. I thought it would be cool. Then I realized I hated myself after 2 miles. Now I'm up to 10 before it sucks but I think I've got a ways to go before going for that dream. :)

Blech on the avocado, but the rest of your panini looks fabulicious.

I like chocolate milk ... but ... either plain skim with choc syrup, or choc whey protein powder ... can't drink the chocolate flavored milk like substance they sell. Try it my way, and you'll never go back.

Kind of giggling that you're ordering off body builder sites... though I love you and your honesty on being bored by the weight room. Does that mean you're improving your weight training discipline? I hope so. I believe weight training saves me from running injuries. Of course, I don't put in as many miles as you do ...

3000 yds in the pool yesterday ... 6 miles and lifting legs today :)

I usually have a scoop of chocolate protein powder with water after my runs. Chocolate milk is also delish.

I LOVE "Without Limits". While it's not a running documentary it IS a running movie. I cry every time I watch it even though I know what will happen. Def inspires me to always give my best.

Ice cream + sugar cookies = pure love!!! What what a sweet sweet baby!! I love smoothies after I run, fruit smoothies or PB and chocolate ones. And I always add a scoop of vanilla protein powder. Keeps me full and it's easy on the stomach after a long run.

I was so happy to see Michelle on The Bachelor go home. But with all her crazy shenanigans this season, I was disappointed she wasn't more crazy when she left. Although I do think she was dreaming up how she's going to jump Brad in a dark alley one day and kick his butt. :-)

Um, I read your blog pretty much every day. And this is my first comment! Your blog inspired me so much, I started my own www.runninathena.blogspot.com. I'm still figuring stuff out, but it's so much fun to write about training!

Also, this is kind of random, but there's a benefit 5K coming up in a week and a half. I don't know if you do this, but would you be interested in posting the info about it on your blog? It's for a really great cause: a student lost his wife to cancer. He put his education on hold while she was ill to care for her and their two children. I won't be running (I'm injured--boo!) but I will be volunteering there. Here are the deets:

I used glutamine for a long time and then ran out and the store in town doesn't sell it anymore and I've been too lazy to get some more and then I forgot. I really think it helped. Thanks for the reminder. I love chocolate milk as a recovery drink.
I love running documentaries. There was this one called Running on the Sun a while ago. I can't find it anywhere, but it was the Badwater one. It was so interesting. I watched it before I was into running and will never forget it. We've also watched a couple on climbing Mt. Everest. Now that is a crazy thing.

Is it wrong that i said YES when the girl that went home didn't get a rose.. I don't want to put any spoilers out, just incase.. but i was sUPAH happy she left! I'm currently catching up on the first 4-5 episodes. I came in on the middle of the season. I <3 Hulu

That panini sounds so good! I love egg + avocado + cheese + salsa, but I never thought to add black beans.

Yes, but I recently watched 127 hours about the guy stuck in a canyon for 5 days until he cut his arm off. It was good, but gruesome. I love inspiring and fun documentaries!

Chocolate milk is my recovery drink too - I love it. And, avos are absolutely one of my favorite foods. I seldom get guacamole made because I just have to eat the avo immediately.

Downloading the Sahara movie right now. looks awesome. Have you seen Without Limits? It's about Prefontaine and it's really good.

I used to get really nauseous after my long runs, no matter what I ate or drank. THEN I started drinking chocolate milk and it solved everything! Its the best (and most delicious) recovery drink! So now I always have it first thing after a long run, and after long races my bf is always waiting at the end with some for me!

I've been wanting to see that Prefontaine movie with Jared Leto in it...I've heard its really good. Have you seen it?

Yay for chocolate milk! I tried protein powder and thought it was yuck- made me feel weird in my stomach. So now I have nesquick(do you get that in the states? Its chocolate powder to add to milk) after my run as I read about the 4/1 ratio too! And a clif bar or something else too coz I want to! I also have veggie glucosamine tablets just in case- they are meant to help maintain joints so I think whats the harm? :)

Ditto on the avacados. Glutamine - tried it after weight training - will try it for running.
Not so much documentaries. More like blog stalking amazing runners - like a guy who is an ultra marathoner and ran with a guy who did 100 miles in a little more than 12 hrs.
As a side, my daughter has to do a passion project for school. She choose running and you are one of her three running heros.

I love documentaries! I've never seen a running one, just Food Inc and Super Size Me. Love them!

I'm so glad I found your blog! I was actually born in Provo, but now we live in Florida, but I hope to go to BYU in a few years! We visit my aunts/cousins/grandparents in Utah sometimes and they took us to Pizza Pie Cafe last time, sooooo yummy!

I've never lost my kid, but I locked him in the car not once, but THREE times..yeah... Now that he's bigger, I just forget to pick him up from things. Thankfully, we live in a small safe town or I'm sure I'd be locked up by now.

Chocolate milk is the best post-run fuel. Ever since I started drinking it after my runs I recover so much quicker.

Running the Sahara was a great movie!

I LOVE documentaries and biographies... and E! True Hollywood Story, bahahahaha.

You won't lose your kid! It's different when they're yours.

I drink lattes for my recovery drink. Like milk on crack I guess?

Works because there is a Starbucks across from the gym where I shower after long runs

My dad left me at a McDonald's once as a child. He made it to another state before he realized it. I, however, thought it was awesome because there were free nuggets and soft serve.

Panini fillings - let's see ....
Avocado, tomato salsa and ground beef.
Danish feta with tuna and sweet peppers.
Raw chopped spinach mixed with cottage cheese together with shredded beef and tomato.

I love chocolate milk but I cannot have any dairy after a run. My stomach gets really sensitive. I usually have toast or PB or oatmeal until my stomach calms down then I eat anything in sight!

I LOVE CHOCOLATE MILK. I need to drink it more.
