MY POST RUN ROUTINE

MY POST RUN ROUTINE

I’ve finally managed (a couple of weeks since the Lisbon marathon) to get back into running! Although I’ve not been doing any “proper” distance running, I’ve been enjoying doing 5-10km after work with my colleagues.

The nights in the UK are now in pitch-black and freezing mode – so I’ve got myself a post run routine that not only spurs me on, but that also treats myself!

  1. Firstly, I drink a bottle of flavoured milk – I read a long time ago in Runners World that chocolate milk is a good recovery drink, so while I don’t drink plain milk really ever (don’t like the taste) these milkshakes from Shaken Udder are utterly delicious (more info on these milkshakes below)
  2. Second, I run myself a bath – with lots of Epsom salts and bubbles to help soothe my muscles and warm me back up again
  3. Third, I get into my PJs (that, ideally, have been warming on the radiator)
  4. Finally, I snuggle up on the sofa, with a peppermint tea and some sort of carby goodness, usually pasta (have you tried my green goddess pasta?!)

More about Shaken Udder:as I said above, I’m not a big milk-drinker – however, I am a big chocolate lover and oh my god the Salted Caramel (hello!) – it’s sweet, salty and simply velvety. A close second for me is the Belgian Chocolate is by far my favourite!! It actually tastes like chocolate, not that chocolate flavouring you usually get! Dom’s a big fruit milkshake fan (which works perfectly) so his favourites are the Banana and new Strawberries and Cream. Quite simply, there’s something for everyone!

The milkshakes:

  • Are gluten free
  • Are suitable for vegetarians
  • Contain vitamin B12
  • Are made with British milk
  • In recyclable bottles
  • Contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives

You can get your hands on a bottle from a number of retailers, including Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Selfridges, Whole Foods or Booths (if you’re up north).
