Improving our running performance is not just dependent on how often we train, or how many kms we run. Running performance is affected by what we eat, including what is eaten after we run. My favourite post-run food is something with peanut butter. Not only is peanut butter delicious but peanut butter is also a good source of protein. As a good source of protein, it supports muscle growth and helps with muscle recovery. Both of which are beneficial for runners.

These peanut butter cookies are perfect for a post-run snack.
