I was blown away by the contents of this article. I started jogging a few months ago and stepped it up a bit this past week. I try to jog at least 3 times a week. At 54, I'm feeling great and realize you're never too old to jog/run. 2 days ago I really over-did it. When I got home I was whipped, literally. I felt weak and shakey. Actually sick. NOW I realize why. I ate 2 bowls of cereal. I can't wait to go running/jogging tomorrow. I will be prepared for as soon as I return. THANK you!
This is a great articole. People that have not been involved in sports usually disregard these tips about what to do after a workout. But this is as important as your workout because if you wake up the next day feeling tired and sore , most likely it is because you did not stretch and probably you did not eat as soon as possible. I woul like to add that the recent studies have found that it is best to eat in the next 10 minutes after a workout ( not 90 as the article reccomended) . As a professional athlete I can assure you that if you eat the right thing in the next 10 minutes after a workout ( the best food to eat after a workout is chocolate milk) you will feel GREAT the following day and your energy level is going to be higher.
