Last summer I wrote a blog about popular post race beverages. Coconut water, beer, chocolate milk, Gatorade, aloe juice, and water are all popular choices. There seems to be a lot of opinions and discussion around what option is best.
Chocolate milk has been proven to help restore muscles quickly. Refueling your body with chocolate milk does wonders because of the science behind it. Chocolate milk contains the perfect ratio of carbohydrates to protein. Chocolate milk contains Vitamin A, Vitamin D, phosphorus, potassium, electrolytes, and fluids to rehydrate. All of these properties are essential for running and training, especially for longer distances like the Rock n Roll 1/2. As I get closer to the Rock n Roll 1/2, I am more in tune than ever with nutrition and post run recovery. Chocolate milk is becoming a regular part of my training and recovery process.
How do you Refuel?
