I'm just starting to run significantly beyond 10km in my training for my first marathon next year and started looking at gels for en route energy boosts.
After seeing the prices and working out how many i'm going to end up using, i decided to google "energy gel recipes" in order to make my own in the hope that they would be a bit cheaper.
I found this site
which looks to be exactly what i'm after. Even after 3 years of inflation, the costs still only worked out at about 15p per gel; well over 6 times cheaper than the average cost of commercial ones with all the same amounts of main ingredients.
So in the name of scientific research (who am I kidding, the other bloke has done all the hard work) and saving about £6 a week I reckon, I'm going to make up a load and report back.
has any one else tried this?
