In case you haven’t noticed, I am super obsessed with coffee. Most days, I drink Lorelai Gilmore levels of coffee. So, as a coffee obsessed runner, a drink that combines coffee + protein = super ideal

All about Click Active:
– 25 grams of protein per serving!
– 150 mg of caffeine per serving
– Type of protein: 70/30 blend of whey isolate/micellar casein
– 130 calories per serving
– Glutamine + BCAAs

CLICK Active™ delivers:

– 21 servings in each canister contains 25 grams of a 70/30 Whey Isolate (fast-digesting) and Micellar Casein (slow digesting) protein combination that delivers better results for developing lean muscle-tissue, decreasing body fat and eliminating the unwanted carbs and fat found in most whey concentrate and protein blends. .
– Whey rapidly increases protein synthesis and casein blocks protein breakdown, a combination of both is ideal. Research shows these proteins support greater increases in lean body mass and decreases in body fat as part of a resistance training program. Perfect for additional protein needs and regulating blood sugar to help you stay lean.
– 150 mg of caffeine from pure, premium espresso coffee to boost alertness, improve performance and decrease recovery time. Natural caffeine from real coffee, not synthetic caffeine or added coffee flavor. Excellent as a pre-workout without the harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients.
– Glutamine and BCAA’s to maximize protein synthesis, muscle recovery and endurance during workouts and reduce body fat during recover.

Bottom line: Click Active is a great pre-workout booster or post-workout delicious recovery drink. My favorite: chocolate milk + banana + Click Active blended all together for a super chocolate-y and nutrition recovery smoothie. The only downside I can think of is that I can’t drink this after evening workouts otherwise I’d literally never sleep. 

Foolish running mistakes: 
– NOT having enough protein post run…I always thought that since I’m not a body builder I don’t need to pump up on the protein. But yeah, protein isn’t just meant for gigantic bulging muscles.
– NOT stretching enough. Enter super angry hips and calves
– NOT foam rolling. Last week was the first time I ever foam rolled and it’s changed my life forever
– NOT resting when I’m tired. Sometimes a rest day is better than forced junk miles.
– NOT enjoying the process. Running can be so fun and social, I’m definitely guilty of taking myself too seriously at times.

What foolish running mistakes have you made?

  1. Caffeine and protein? Very interesting! I still haven’t found a protein powder to stick with. I need to really expand my music catalog and dive into the world of Ed Sheeran…I know he has so many great songs!
