I noticed a HUGE difference in my recovery time already--after running 7.5 miles I was prepared for the entire day after being full of sore legs, especially considering that I was still sore from the legs/back workout when I went running. But my legs felt great yesterday! Thanks for the advice
Lentils are great for healthy energy. Ironically, I'm actually considering lessening my protein consumption for more energy since I've been feeling tired during P90X month 2. Just goes to show that different people have different nutritional needs for different activities. Some of the best advice I've gotten on this forum is to find what works for you and stick with it, whether it's 80/10/10, 60/20/20, or 30/50/20. A little trial-and-error isn't a bad thing.
And congrats on the recovery and the running. It sounds like you're definitely putting the effort in, so your results should be terrific.
