I've read about the need to take on protein & carbs in the first 20mins after exercise. I've never really done this, and typically I've not felt too bad the next day. Sometimes I have achy quads on the second day but nothing that stops me riding.
So, I had a trial of High5 recovery and tried it last night after a century ride. With milk it was lovely a nice cold chocolate milkshake, so I will probably carry on with it as it just tastes great.
But, I don't feel any different to the usual minor aches this morning. Not sure what the 'real-world' affect of consuming a recover drink is. Am I wrong for expecting to feel a bit better/different than when I don't use a recovery drink?
