The purpose of my blogging is to
- Share my sports nutrition knowledge,
- Answer your pressing questions,
- Learn while researching the answers, and
- Create an online presence.
You can help me do this by sharing your nutrition, wellness, and exercise questions. My goal is to post at least weekly, so I promise I will answer your questions although it might take a minute. I am full time working momma of an active 17 month old, an overachieving Master’s student in Nutrition and Fitness, a loving (ok, I try my best) wife, and elite runner hanging on to my fitness. SO that’s why it might take a minute.
First question that I’d like to address:
When my boyfriend gets home from weight lifting at the gym he tries to eat protein right away to help his muscles build. Do I need to do the same thing after a cardio workout like running? Does the timing really matter, or is there no real urgency as long as you eat some protein that day?
I plan to answer this question in two separate posts:
- Recovery post weight lifting
- Recovery post cardio
So stay posted!
