    I'll eat a pickle (sounds disgusting but it's surprisingly good post-run) to get some salt and then finish with a large glass of chia fresca which I pre-make before the run so it's perfect when I get home  (12 oz water, 1 T lime juice, 1/2 T sugar, and 1 T chia seeds).

      2 green triangle Feosol + 1 500mg Vit C tab + 1 quart of water on an empty stomach every night before I go to bed. for me that helps recovery more than anything.

        Skimmed milk milkshake as soon as I finish my warm down. Protein:carb ratio of about 1:4 is what I aim for [citation needed].

          Nevermind.  I already posted in this thread weeks ago.

            I always have a cliff bar and some water.  Accelerade is also pretty good.  And if all else fails....Bread with peanut butter (natural), whole wheat bread and OJ or Chocolate Milk.

                  I always eat multigrain toast, almond butter, and a banana after a long run. I'm not sure if there is research behind this but: it's yummy, healthy, and fills me up!

                   

                  I've also heard cherries and/ or cherry juice is good for recovery.
