On speed-days I get very tired and sleepy a couple of hours after a workout. I guess this is the delayed onset of cns-tiredness.
If I can stay awake I usually regain wakefulness after a couple of hours, but if I succumb to the sleepiness and take a short nap, usually no longer than an hour, I wake up all dizzy and get problems with concentration the rest of that day.
Could this have something to do with nutrition?
This is what I usually eat before and after a workout:
In the morning 4 slices of bread with cheese and some liver. Multivitamin.
About 3 hours later an egg and some easily digested fruit.
Immediately after practice I make myself some dinner, eating it some 20 to 30 minutes later.
The rest of the day I have various fruits. Sometimes a bit of chicken.
ZMA before bed.
I’m thinking maybe a post-workout-drink could help?
I’m wondering too if substituting some of the fruit with vegetables could help? I have a vague memory of me eating some carrots and feeling better afterwards. I really should eat more vegetables anyway.
