    Thanks for all the info folks! I do stand up all day at work too, so that doesn't help. I've been skating / playing for a year now, and training with these guys for a few months. I had a period where I thought I'd gotten used to the stance/basics and it was less tiring, but now I'm back to feeling exhausted 😂 I don't think it helps that they are all loads faster/better than me so I'm always chasing and pushing hard! The best way to get improve, but want to make sure I'm giving my body the tools to cope!

    What are the best ways to get more? A specific B vit supplement? I don't really eat much fortified stuff I don't think. Oat milk sometimes.

    I think the main problem is I've never really done this kind of intense training before, so I don't really know what I'm doing 😅
    @hippy at first I was feeling kind of hungover, so I assumed dehydration. So I've tried to make sure I'm fully hydrated during the day before, electrolytes during, and plenty of liquids the next day my which seems better. I'm eating oats in my smoothie after, not sure what form of carbs is needed. Now it's more muscle fatigue, and feeling like I've been through a ringer 😅 I thought it would get better as I got more used to the intensity, but I think it's worse, I'm probably pushing harder 😂

    I'm getting roughly 80-90g a day I reckon, I do eat nuts fairly regularly too. I was recommended 2g/kg body weight, so I'm looking at around 180 at least??!

    Sleep is a factor too, but I can't change when training is so I've just gotta deal with a sub optimal amount of sleep after 😆

    Possibly not. I'm taking the VEG1 daily tabs.

    Any tips for upping protein intake? I thought I was doing alright, loads of beans & pulses, tofu, leafy greens, protein shakes after training (& the morning after) but was still feeling fucked about two days after hockey practice (there are other factors at play here I know, but protein was the first one a PT friend recommended I look at). Actually worked out my average intake & it looks like I'm getting about half my recommended protein! I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to double my intake! I already eat a lot of food!
