One of the things which many of us do before exercise is go through our warm-up routines. This might involve a some walking, a few miles on the bike, or a slow-paced jog, to get the muscles warm and quicken the pulse, so your body is ready for action. A few stretches and you’re ready to run. But what about after your training session? Instead of chatting with friends think about your post-race routine. Doing a cool down and some deep stretches can help your muscles flush away lactate and remain flexible; but nutrition is also important. I drink ‘For Goodness Shakes’ recovery drinks as soon as I can after a hard session to help with hydration, and replenish muscle glycogen stores.
