I was wondering if those sports drinks do really work.............or is all in the mind.
You know, the placebo effect.
The thing is that i have run using those drinks and using only water, and i personaly don't notice big diference.
I have been testing it, as in going for a run with water and other day with a sport drink,
Sometimes i run long runs lasting 90 minutes and i only take with me a bottle of sugra free -low calorie sport drink. I run ok, as usual. Then i did the same another day with juts water and a little bit of salt on it. I did not notice any change.
This is why i wonder........what is going on? or maybe it is me?
Also, i notice that when i run on an empty stomach in early morning and when i run in the evening after work i don't really notice big diference in performance. I wonder if i am strange?
But what i notice is that the first 5 or 10 minutes are a bit hard. My legs feel lazy for about 5 minutes when i start running early morning, but after those firt minutes.................i feel perfectly ok and could run for miles..........................is that normal?
