Hi folks - re protein. A 20 gram intake of protein in the golden hour after your workout will have solid benefits.

I haven't used any of the shakes or such, but I read that chocolate milk is the best thing to drink after a run or a workout!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

If I haven't eaten in awhile and I am crunched for time ....e.g.don't have time to eat and start digesting before exercise, I make up a quick shake, 1 cup skim milk and a scoop of protein powder. Its light on my stomach so it doesn't slosh around or cramp up and give me enough energy to get through my workout.

I don't think it would be a great idea for a very long or very intense workout, but for my hour long sessions, it works out ok.

Oh and sometimes if I don't NEED to eat before I head out, but am hungry when I get back, I sometimes will make a half shake to tide me over while I am cooking supper.

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;

The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

Hey guys,

I've read quite a lot of stories on the blagosphere about people using whey protein before and/or after they run, so I was wondering:

Have/do any of you used protein as a supplement while going through the C25K weeks? And if so, have you noticed any tangible benefits?

I've only just started, but I've decided to consume some protein before/after the sessions and track how it affects next-day soreness and the like.

"Self-discipline" is redundant, for all discipline comes from the self.
