Revisiting Recovery

So this weekend was probably my highest volume training weekend yet: 45km ride on Saturday and 20km run on Sunday. The two things I noticed today were I felt super tired at my interval/strength class and I was ravenous all day.

I think that I probably should have taken today as a rest day but I tried to power through. The end result was about a 75% workout and rest day is now delayed until Thursday.  I also think I need to pay more attention to recovery nutrition.  If, like me, you simply aren't hungry after a long run there are some easy things to do to get much needed fuel back into your system to assist in that valuable recovery phase.

On a queasy stomach here are a few of my go to snacks/mini meals:

Next weekend I plan to up the bike kms a bit more but the run will be scaled back for my taper before the May 6th half I am running.  I would love to hear your favourite post run/bike fuel! Please leave a comment!
