Hi, just wondering what you guys think is sufficient enough to have after my cross country meet, yea i know post/pre workout nutrition topics gets the the shit beat out of them, but i cant seem to find info thats either correct or that fits my goals
I'm basically gonna be running for 20 minutes, it doesn't seem like a lot, but I'm running pretty damn hard and by the end of the race I'm pretty exhausted, and either eating anything or eating the wrong foods doesn't seem like it will do any justice.
I know carbs definitely need to in my meal, most likely 10-15 minutes after. but do i need any protein? i was thinking no because its only 20 minutes, just carbs. do you think a simple whole wheat bagel and an apple would do good? or should i go straight up simple carbs? because i can buy food from a concession stand that they got.
i know to some of you this is probably a useless topic seeing how I'm only running 20 minutes (a nice hard 20 minutes) but i wanna get in the habit of getting my nutrition down\, pre and post.
After Hard 20 minute race- should i eat simple carbs or Complex Carbs or Both? should i mix in protein or any fat?
- like i said sorry if this topic sounds dumb, but i just wanna make sure I'm doing all the right things.
