If you are training for a marathon this is even more important; marathon runners can lose up to 5 percent of their total body weight during the race, or around four to five liters of fluids on average.To avoid dehydration and help the body replenish its reserves, be sure to drink plenty of fluids in the hours after your run, whether you prefer water, fruit juice or sports recovery drinks. You should also avoid alcohol if you really want to reach peak performance. Not only will it dehydrate you, but celebrity trainer David Kirsch also adds that “during a wellness program there is no room for hangovers. You need to be fresh, focused, and on top of your game to achieve the desired results.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutGet a good night’s sleepDr. Andrew Murray, who works predominantly with runners but also swimmers and cyclists, says that the one thing they all have in common is they are “world class sleepers.” He recommends at least seven hours a night to reduce the risk of infection and stay healthy, plus a good night’s sleep is possibly the best way for your body to repair itself after exercise. Kirsch also adds that skimping on sleep “will sabotage your hard-earned workout gains,” so to get the most out of your run, as well as reach your true running potential in your next one, make sure you prioritize sleep. Refuel your musclesDalton Wong, trainer to Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence and founder of TwentyTwo Training advises a post-run combination of protein to repair, fat to help you feel full, and carbs to fuel the body. He recommends a protein smoothie or a proper meal between one hour to 90 minutes after your run, and nuts, seeds, and/or an apple as good options for snack until you can eat a real meal. Dr. Murray agrees, also recommending a ratio of three portions of carbs to one portion of protein within the hour after your run. Pasta or a baked potato with tuna, a chicken sandwich, eggs or pulses are all good choices.Stretch it outAlthough Dr. Murray says you don’t need to do a specific warm-up, just something to get you moving a little and ready for running, he does recommend a cool down, especially when you have done a more intense, longer run. Cooling down and stretching is a key step in any running plan to aid recovery, reduce muscle soreness and prevent injuries.Foam rolling can also be useful, not only straight after your run but also the day after and days following if you’re still feeling sore. It can also be particularly helpful when combined with stretching because it helps break up adhesions, which allows for a better and deeper stretch.

first_imgDespite a spectacular opening ceremony of the Delhi Commonwealth Games, complaints over operational lapses continue to plague the Games.During the first joint press conference of the CWG Organising Committee and the Games federation, the officials were bombarded with complaints over faulty weighing machines, lack of information on CWG website and the even the travails of the Australian contingent during the opening ceremony.But CGF chief Mike Fennell said that no matter how well organised a multi-discipline Games are, problems occur on a daily basis and they are tackled as and when they occur.”We witnessed a spectacular opening ceremony. It was a success. There were a few operational issues when the events began but we are meeting on a daily basis to sort out the issues. They will be corrected,” Fennell said here on Tuesday.”I have seen international events like the Beijing Olympics and the Pan American Games and there were issues there as well.”There were complaints that the Australian contingent were made to wait close to an hour in the tunnel at the Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium on Sunday and ‘were treated like cattle’. CWG OC chairman Suresh Kalmadi, on his part, said the incident was unfortunate.”If they (Australians) had problems during the ceremony, I apologise to them,” he said.”There were a few issues, but we have sorted most of them out. Such issues crop up regularly, which is normal. That is why we meet every day to sort them out. Tomorrow is the deadline and all issues would be sorted out,” Kalmadi said.advertisementOne of the biggest concerns on the opening day of events was the faulty weighing machines in boxing which gave inconsistent reading. OC secretary general Lalit Bhanot, however, brushed it off as a minor issue and said it had been taken care of.

first_imgIndia skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was all praise for coach Gary Kirsten and said his knowledge of the local conditions will certainly come in handy as India take on South Africa in the first of the three- Test series beginning in Centurion on Thursday.”Gary Kirsten is the best thing that could have happened to Indian cricket.He not only knows our players but also understands the mindset of the South Africans and that insight will be important,” he said.Dhoni is confident that past experience of playing in the Indian Premier League and Champions League in South African conditions will hold the team in good stead during the three- match Test series against the Proteas.”It will be important for us to adapt to the conditions. Yet I believe we will be better prepared than before, because the guys have played here in the IPL and in the Champions League and it is not that foreign to them,” Dhoni said.”The most important thing is to remain focused and well prepared for what awaits us,” the India skipper added.The second edition of the IPL was shifted to South Africa due to general election in India and the rainbow nation also hosted the Champions League earlier this year.Countering the hosts’ threats of preparing fast and bouncy tracks Dhoni said, “We are so used to that question – about how we will handle it when we are bombarded with short balls. The answer is that it will not bother us. Most of our batsmen have recently played quite a lot in South Africa and are much more familiar with conditions than was the case in the past,” Dhoni added.advertisementThe Indian captain, however, believed that the South African fast bowlers are at the moment focusing on the shortpitch stuff to unsettle his team.”It is not something which we are not expecting. It is after all how South Africa have achieved success against us in the past,” he said.- With PTI inputslast_img read more
