From the makers of your favorite Isotonic Energy gel comes a new complete rapid recovery powder for post endurance activity.
Pretty fancy huh?
In full transparency I am trying this somewhat begrudgingly. I love SiS products and I’m sure this is a great tool to include in my recovery arsenal; but I am somewhat lazy when it comes to recovery drinks.
I am going to be ramping up my milage in preparation for the Bahamas marathon and I want to ensure that I am ready when I touch down in sunny Nassau!
Part of being ready is recovery…rapid replenishment of glycogen stores and the provision of protein helps to get the most from training and prepare me for my next session. Nutrition plays a crucial role in running. It affects performance and can shape your overall experience whether it be on the road or trail. What I’ve learned over the years is that it doesn’t matter if you are buying your first pair of running shoes or winning the Boston Marathon, your fueling can make all the difference.
I am trying the chocolate and the strawberry but there is also vanilla available! SiS recommends replacing carbohydrate stores you have lost throughout the ride is also important. Aim to replenish these stores with a portion of 1.2 g/kg of carbohydrates every 3 hours for the next 12 hours. Be flexible on meeting these guidelines. Just as your fueling requirements vary based on the run length and intensity, so does your need to refuel.
Specifically what I am looking to accomplish with consuming a REGO+ shake following my training runs will help rehydrate, refuel and recover immediately. SiS also recommended having a meal which also contains a protein source, such as chicken, salmon or black beans, as well as being rich in carbohydrates.
