What to Do Immediately After Your Meet

IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOUR MEET:

  • If you don’t compete again within the next three hours, re-hydrate and take in carbohydrates and protein within a half-hour.  For the protein, you might try a turkey or peanut butter sandwich.  Many recovery drinks on the market like Endurox are also worthwhile trying.
  • If you do compete again, but not within an hour, you can try some liquid carb like non-citrus fruit juice or a sports gel, but discontinue it within an hour of your event.  Re-hydrate.
