Smoked Salmon and Veggie Wraps
Sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that may help reduce exercise-induced muscle damage. The complex carbs of whole grains help replenish glycogen. Smoked salmon contains heart-healthy omega-3s as well as sodium, one of the electrolytes you need to replenish following a race. Athletes need around 2,000 mg of sodium per day regularly, so you may want to make lower-sodium choices for the remainder of the day.
