Lately I’ve been forced to run later in the day, like around 9-ish to be able to get a decent cardio workout in. I’m trying to stave off the effects of catabolism, so after a roughly 2 mile solid run, I’ll have 4 BCAAs and a shake with 1 scoop Biotest whey, 1 scoop Metabolic Drive, and a half cup of oatmeal.
Does this sound like a fairly decent protocol to follow?[/quote]
Sounds excellent to me; you’re replacing everything you lost and then some.
When I used to run on my off days from the gym, I lived near a small, residential island that had a road circling it that was .9 miles around. If I ran during the day, I could do 3, maybe 4 laps before I was wiped out. Running in the evening like you’re doing turned out to be a whole different ball game. After 7 laps I was still going strong and more than a little amazed. I quit after 10 when my feet started to blister, but my legs and lungs could have kept going. I never realized how much direct sunlight took out of you, but this made me a believer. Keep up the night runs, man. They are definitely the way to go.
