>Health and Nutrition>What's best for rehydration after running?
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.
Crap! I forgot IV, the quickest way to rehydration after a marathon.

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.
I'll be back
Ultragen. But it's more about the carbs and the BCAAs than hydration.
2014 goals: functional hamstrings < 2:55 at Napa < 24 at Western States
I put Ultima. I don't know what it is, but it sounds pretty good.
Is this a trick question?
all running goals are under review by the executive committee.
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.
Not really a water drinker and that gets about 1.5 litres of fluid through me quickly

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 HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.
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.
Finisher of business.
And Slurpee! Unless Slurpees are adult frozen beverages. I'm thinking they are...
