They are a welcome treat after a tough training or even as a snack along the way. When a little moist they really work with a coffee or if your a tea person I’d recommend a nice cup of Barry’s tea! My favourite about 30 minutes after a session. There are plenty options to vary things of course, adding a little protein powder for the post run hit or another addition of your choice. They beat those extra sugary foods we might crave after exercise.

A long day at work today so I literally ran in door and back out again on the bike. It was a cold spin out the coast into a nice head wind but all in all a good session and feeling good considering match yesterday. I plan to climb Carrauntoohill, Ireland’s tallest mountain on Thursday. I am working the weeks training around this so a good gym session with a run along with soccer training tomorrow, and a  rest day Wednesday should set me up nicely !
