Happy Tuesday! September 13, 2011

Posted by gogirlcindy in Announcements, Tastey Tuesdays.

It was a great run this morning. More running than walking – some up hill, a nice 2+ miles workout.

We have another run/walk on Thursday @ Elk Park.

I am always hungry after running…not starving, just in need of a snack. In my search for the right thing to eat, I found this article on Smart Snacks. They suggest a “substantial snack combining a 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein.”   “The mix speeds muscle recovery, especially if eaten right away since foods consumed within 30 minutes of your workout provide the maximum recovery benefit.” And guess what? Chocolate milk has this ratio and in the low-fat variety a good choice for after a run. Nice!   Check it out nice to know that pudding and chips & salsa are good choices too!

Hope to see you Thursday!
