Saturday has always been my long run day. Two weeks from today I will be running the Lincoln Presidential 1/2 Marathon in Springfield, Il. I got Debbie over at Healthy Running Mom to join me on this journey. Unfortunately, as you know outdoor training season has not been in our favor this year. One year we were breaking records and experiencing temps in the mid and upper 80’s and today, I just want to break 40 degrees! It’s been bright and sunny all week but freezing!! Anyways, typically after my long runs it takes me a bit of time to really reach the stage when I want something to eat. I used to drink Gatorade post runs because your body really needs something after you depleting all your energy and sweating out all those minerals; however, Gatorade is loaded with sugar!
The wonderful folks over at Isopure sent me some of their new protein recovery drinks!
ISOPURE is the first drink with 100% pure whey protein isolate. Sounds complicated, but it’s really simple. This fantastic drink is packed with 40 grams of the purest, lightest, cleanest protein and 25 grams of energy-fueled complex carbs. So, say no to fat, lactose and impurities, and yes to speed, power and recharging.
It’s a pretty big bottle and given my size, I decided to drink 1/2 of it after my long run! It tastes great and doesn’t leave you with that overly sweet feeling! It’s easy on your stomach and really helps replenish and recharge you!
How do you put energy back in the tank post exercise? What works for you?

Have a great day everyone! I’ll be back tomorrow for a final giveaway in our SPRING INTO RUNNING GIVEAWAY WEEK! I hope you have all enjoyed this week as much as I have. Not to worry though just because the week is coming to an end, doesn’t mean I still don’t have great giveaways lined up in the coming weeks!! There is so much more to come!
