Timothy Taylor's Personal Trainer

In a refreshing change from the norm there's been a report, via The Telegraph of all places, that a quick beer after sport is good for you.
Spanish researchers say beer can help someone who is dehydrated retain liquid better than water.

Prof Manuel Garzon, of Granada University, also claimed the bubbles in beer help to quench the thirst and that its carbohydrate content can help to replace lost calories.

So, those three pints I had after walking up to Eccles Pike (not to mention Shining Tor) were actually the right thing to have. Possibly.
