I find plain low-fat yoghurt also a good thing to eat after training: good mix of protein and carbs.
After a long run I also like to drink a cup or so of V8 Veg juice - nice and salty, to replace some of the salt (I sweat a lot during a 12km run!) and rich in minerals one loses like potassium.
Somewhat depressing is the reminder that one would have to run/walk 35 miles to lose 1lb of fat. An oversight in that statement is the weight that calculation is based on. It is definitely higher than my weight (I am quite short, for example) so I would have to run even quite a bit more to lose 1lb.View Thread
