Thanks. Great answer, makes a lot of sense.Nutrient timing isn't deemed as important as it once was thought from what I've read and been told. Though this is specifically talking about resistance training rather than cardio.
The idea that you should eat after a workout is mainly if you have worked out in a fasted state, for example, got up, not eaten breakfast and worked out or run. But if you've had a pre workout meal then needing a post workout meal makes no significant difference.
Though personally I like to eat after every workout, simply because your blood sugar will likely be low after exercise and you'll feel a lot better once you've eaten.
