I meant to post this before the Berryman last weekend, but I've been in tailspin of being too busy and kind of depressed. I've seen posts about not being able to stop eating after big/grueling races. I'm sure you are all up to speed on glycogen stores and all of that, so at the risk of being redundant, here is what I know about rebuilding glycogen stores: Eat a 4-1 ratio of carbs to protein immeadiately afterwards (so many grams per kilograms body weight) and eat small meals with approx the same ratio (maybe heavier on the protein side for a few of them) every hour for the next 5-6 hours.

Thanks for the info! Up till now, my refuel strategy has been simple: Chocolate milk and hopefully BACON. No, really.

I have always used the 4:1 ratio after a long race.......4 beers to 1 water. Most of the time I like to use this same ratio the whole week before a long race.
