Rockin' Refuel (Read 1399 times)


Will Crew for Beer

    Just curious if anyone else has tried this. I asked my DW to pick me up some chocolate milks and some vanilla milks, if she could find any, for after races and long runs. She came home with a chocolate and a vanilla Rockin' Refuel. I thought they were pretty good.

      Have not tried....but the dirt poor graduate student version I used to make was 2 scoops dried milk mixed into chocolate milk.  "Protein fortified."

      Consistently Slow

        Ensure works for me.

        Run until the trail runs out.

        Needs more cowbell!

          When I was training for higher mileage races I liked to do Carnation Instant Breakfast made with lactose-free milk.

           

          Why lactose-free?  For the longest time I would have awful gastric issues post-run...I blamed it on the effort.  Then I had a lightbulb moment and considered that maybe it was the recovery drink.  Changed the milk and had no issues after that.

            I've not tried any fancy 'fortified' refuel chocolate milks -- my recovery drink of choice is a glass of plain old lowfat chocolate milk from the supermarket refrigerator.  The only downside is perishability, but I prefer the taste to non-refrigerated chocolate milk drinks like Nesquik.

              Will give it a try.

                Most of the non-milk recovery drinks I've tried don't taste very good. I think my wife said the Rockin' Refuels were $1.39 each. Seems like a reasonable price.

                  Have you tried this?  Big grin

                   

                  The kiss goodnight, it comes with me,
                  Both wrong and right, our memories. 
                  The whispering before we sleep,
                  Just one more thing that you can't keep.

                  Our favorite place we used to go,
                  The warm embrace that no one knows.
                  The lovin' look that's left your eyes,
                  But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.

                    That is pretty reasonable as those things go.  I've also used SlimFast with powdered milk added.

                      I drink water, and then eat a meal.
