As our Muscle Milk Light Half Marathon Challenge runners are adding on the miles, theyâ€™re focused on supporting their training with good nutrition. Â Athlete Shannah Peters wondered, â€śWhatâ€™s a good after-run snack?â€ť Â The ZOOMA Texas Ambassadors responded with many great ideas, including Greek yogurt with fruit, chocolate milk, toast with peanut butter/banana, and of course Muscle Milk! Â Our runners are formulating lots of questions to ask at the grocery store tour weâ€™ll be taking next week. Â An H-E-B dietitian will be guiding the ladies around the store, pointing out good choices for pre and post-run eats that will help them get the most out of their miles. Â
Everyone reported a successful 6-mile long run this weekend. Â Rhonda Cloos said about her run, â€śThe first three miles were great, so great that I increased my pace a bit at that point. Not a smart move because at 3.5 miles the dreaded side stitch set in. I slowed my pace, massaged the sore area and took deep breaths and by mile 4.25 it was gone. I stayed slow and easy the rest of the way. This is the longest distance I’ve run in awhile so I’m very grateful to be part of this amazing group.â€ť Â Great job, Rhonda! Â
Hereâ€™s Rhonda telling what she loves about the Muscle Milk Light Half Marathon Challenge, powered by H-E-B and ZOOMA.
Thanks to Muscle Milk Light and H-E-B for making this program possible.
