Food and training energy sources

I have been using Tailwind for about a year now.  It's my go to training nutrition.  It's all I take with me.   Before a long workout I estimate how many calories I'll burn and bring about 100-200 less of that amount in Tailwind with me.  It dissolves even in cold water quickly.  I have tried all of their flavors and love every one of them.  If I had to pick a favorite I think it would be the plain or orange.

I received this book for my birthday…

Feed Zone Portables

I've tried the pizza rolls… yum!  And made the blueberry and also the cherry chocolate sticky balls.  Yum yum!!  I usually just use Tailwind on long workouts, but I think I'm going to try the sticky balls on my long run this weekend.  I'm really looking forward to it! They are sweet but salty and it's like having a dessert on your run.  :)

I haven't tried the recipes below yet, but they look like a very tasty and refreshing way to recover after a workout.

We are about halfway through the triathlon season.  I hope everyone is having a great season so far!!

Happy Training!
