I've been getting really bad charley horses in my legs when I sleep. I think it's from an electrolyte imbalance (because I'm awesome at self diagnostics) and I had another charley horse in my leg wile i was asleep going into Thursday morning. I woke up screaming from these, I just around room and it's a little embarrassing. My cat thinks I'm crazy. Anyways, I had a pretty good work out yesterday so on my way home I was contemplating how I was going to drink a protein shake and enough water/electrolytes before I went to bed. Then I came up with my fantastic conclusion, I'm going to add vanilla protein powder to my gatorade.
So here's the finished product. I also added a spoonful of ground flax that I thought would make it creamier. It was really runny because I used the entire thing of gatorade, which was a terrible idea. But all in all it wasn't that bad. It was bearable and I slept with out waking up to charley horses which was a total success!
Goals: Tonight-5 miles. Tomorrow- 13.1 (test run) Sunday-rest. Maybe yoga or a walk or something
Have you made any drink concoctions?
How did they turn out?
