Given the opportunity, I go for protein-based food as refuelling after a long run; but it also depends what time it is - I couldn't face eating chicken at 9am on a Sunday!

I've tried the Arla high-protein yogurts, they're okay but not practical away from home.

Another vote for chocolate milk or something similar (I tend to get For Goodness Shakes from the supermarket if they’re on offer) with a banana.

Depending on the length of run can be anything from a glass of water to peanut butter on crackers and electrolyte drink. I normally have to wait at least half an hour before I can face eating anything substantial after a long run.

When i ran far enough for it to matter - chocolate milk sometimes. Biscuit. Cake. Cheese sandwich. Something lying about. Post-race buffet. If I was away, a cereal bar (Fruesli preferred), flapjack or similar. Beer.

No overpriced, hyped, targeted voodoo snakeoil.

We have nestle milkshake powder, rather than ready made milkshake.

TIME protein mix works out at 57p per 400 ml serving. Almost all protein drinks are milk-powder i.e. whey based

Arriving home following a morning long run, I just have breakfast cereal (usually muesli), toast and a cup of tea.

Following a marathon, it's a jam sandwich and chocolate milk with For Goodness Shakes being my preference.

Best fish supper I ever ate was after a marathon.

If I’ve run where I need something more than water and a banana (what I have after park run) then I love fried eggs on brown toast with salt, pepper and a glass of milk.
If I run in the morning before work then I’m coming back to breakfast of porridge.
After a race is tricky, I’m never more organised than having water so generally hope there’s something in the giddy bag.

I'm quite happy to have very little after a run and I don't feel I have issues recovering. But science suggests more protein would be better for me so I really should make an effort.
