So let's talk about post-run refueling.
I've recently discovered coconut water. I picked up a couple of Zicos at Trader Joe's last weekend in San Diego YUM!
Not so much "YUM" reaction from my husband this morning. I gave him a taste, and you would have thought he was drinking toilet water.
|I thought it was good. |
I did a 6-mile hill workout and wanted something a little more than water. The mango Zico (14-oz.) has only 60 calories, 12g of sugar and lots of electrolytes. More potassium in one bottle than in a banana, apparently.
I'm just so "sports drinked out" after my marathon in April.
I also like Vita Coco. The one with pineapple is really good. There's a bit more sugar in it though. A 17-oz. serving like this one has 120 calories and 32g of sugar. Hubs probably would have liked this one a little better.
After a long run, I'm a huge fan of Shamrock Farms Rockin' Refuel. I know a lot of people want to YAK at the thought of refueling with milk, but I LOVE these.
Fortified with 20g of protein
For a mega boost, I actually experimented a couple of weeks ago with two scoops of Vanilla Natural Click mixed with a vanilla Rockin' Refuel. Delish!
What do you like after your runs???
