Athletic nutrition is a a ridiculously complex topic that I won’t claim to fully understand. In fact, I’m a bit of a nutrition idiot. For the most part, this doesn’t hurt me— I think that long-course or IM athletes are the ones who really need to treat race day nutrition as a “fourth event” in triathlon (or a third event in duathlon). But I do have some ideas about recovery nutrition and I think I have some of this down pretty well. The purpose of this short post is to share a quick tip for making this cheap and easy.
