What's best for rehydration after running? (Read 497 times)

      Water.

      OCD  If you don't laugh...   

        All of the above, except maybe the pond/lake/sea water, i'd likely drink from a stream if desperate enough. Last week ran though some sprinklers, and gladly let the water hit my mouth, knowing it was municipal water albeit coming thorough moss covered hoses.

          I love sparkling water after a run and always.

              I put Ultima. I don't know what it is, but it sounds pretty good. But really I mostly drink water and sometimes eat salty snacks if I have a craving.

                Ultragen. But it's more about the carbs and the BCAAs than hydration.

                  Guess again.

                    Is this a trick question?

                      I'll usually down a large glass of chocolate milk for recovery and then head to 7-11 for a Super Big Gulp of diet pepsi or diet coke.

                        If you had ever tried it you would not have chosen it. Stagnant pond water would be better than Ultima. That and Heed are the only things I have ever spat out at an aid station.

                          Most of the time, diet Coke. After a very long run, full or ultra, I vote for a margarita. Lime juice for potassium, salt for sodium, ice for rehydration, and tequila to kill any pain. Perfect postrace beverage.

                            I drink water but after my run I also have my fiber drink.  It's nasty, so I add the fiber to water, then add a couple scoops of hot cocoa mix to make it taste better.  I don't know where that falls in the poll, but it is what works for me.

                              I drink a smoothie or shake after my morning run, but that is more about nutrients than hydration.

                               

                              When I am looking specifically for hydration I reach for sports drink (Gatorade or Nuun) if I can feel salt on my face. Otherwise water is fine.
