kimchi screwed me up last weekend. Had to find a shitter in a field and abandon the race.

Just heard that as little as 30g of alcohol equivalent (basically, slightly more as one "standard" bottle of beer) could increase glycogen resynthesis time by 60-100% (thus, impacting recovery). Any truth in such a statement?
Quick google yielded inconclusive results, for instance, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12740311

Alcool will also inhibit some of the key hormonal signals and impair muscle recovery.

But a glass of red helps you feel a little more human, little less prisoner-esque, when training.

I'm not above ignoring psychological benefits.

the Chaos and Pain blog has an excellent series on why the whole 'alcohol tanks your performance' stuff is bullshit. Just don't open the site at work or around your kids or at least disable the images as he posts some terrible shit on there.
