In Testing

Whilst I’m not vegan, I’ve never been able to digest protein recovery shakes that use soy or whey, so I was excited to try this rice-protein based drink. I added it to water, using a Shaker Bottle and then gulped it down! The taste is like chocolate water, which doesn’t sound great but trust me it tastes good. There’s no clumping of powder – the one time I put the powder in first and then added the water it didn’t blend as well – and the consistency is so light that it slips down very easily.


Verdict

For a while I didn’t bother with any protein drinks after long runs, as I couldn’t find one I liked. I knew this wasn’t a great strategy, as I always felt depleted for the rest of the day, and often into the following morning. I never seemed to be able to eat enough protein in post-run meals. Now I use this Tailwind recovery drink after every long training session and I’ve seen a noticeable improvement to the speed of my recovery. Not only is my energy better but also my muscles aren’t as stiff the next day.
