Can anyone recommend a sports drink? I have been drinking lucosade body fuel but thinking about trying something else to give me a boost before i run
Quite confused by all the different types - any suggestions?
Personally I'll run for upto an hour with nothing. Over that I just carry good old fashioned plain water and some gels if I need them. The only sports drink I do have is a protien shake to help recovery after my longer runs.
You should be hydrated enough, and have adequate energy stores to not need to take anything else on (including electrolytes!) for runs less than an hour in UK temp's.
Ive been doing 9 - 10 miles - Im doing a half next week
I see most of you dont bother with anything
Came across this 'recipe' a wee while back and works a treat for me
1 ltr water
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tspn salt
juice to taste
Have it during a run if I'm going over an hour or so, but not really needed for shorter runs as previously said and its great on the fells
Cheap as chips as they say lol
none...its all marketing shite.
whatever you normally drink will be fine.
