post-run treat


there is a window of time after a hard workout during which your body uses sugar differently.  don't ask me how, but it's good for you then.  so!  reason to run #2 (sanity-saver = #1) is the chocolate shake with peppermint stick chocolate chip ice cream.  no kidding.  (the sugar's fine, the unhealthy fat - oh well!)

  1. These are happy pictures. Being allowed and encouraged to eat a sugary treat after a run is reason enough to start doing it again. Ok, sanity-saver ranks pretty high, too. You would make the perfect running partner.
