That makes more sense than the column in the print edition of Pedal which was titled Recovery but was actually about a Racing Clean initiative. :skep:
Yep.

Geoff's article was printed twice.

LMN, can you elaborate on the RHR method she talks about in the article. I have a pulse oximeter and would like to try this more accurate way of tracking HR in the AM.
This is the link I used to learn a bit more about the Rusko test, but I think as far as RHR goes it is just counting your pulse for a minute to see where you're at? You'll usually find a normal range, and then when it's elevated or suppressed you can usually learn (trial and error) if it means you are under-recovering/resting or getting sick, etc.

Question

How important is a good recovery drink post ride?

Any recommendations for a product that works well in your opinions too?

A recovery drink is the best way to get nutrients in you quickly.

Most recovery mixes are just protien powder and most of the research indicates that we get more than enough protien in our diets

What I recommend is the combination of fruit, yogurt and milk, and water.

I like yogurt

because it is handy and cheap. I keep the water moving and I like to have something with salt.

I've been loving cottage cheese post ride.

I may be 54 but I'm doing my best to improve.

Thanks for posting...I sent this to my GF who thinks days off are for wimps...I've given up trying to convince her otherwise. Maybe your article will help.
