I waited for a break in the rain and I went out for the 8 miles I was supposed to do tomorrow. No rain but lot's of WIND. I would have taken rain and no wind I think. It went pretty good. I ran against the wind for the last 4 miles. I kept a good pace for me.
I decided to try this new fuel I bought: EFS Liquid shot.
Chris K is the one who suggested I try this. THANK YOU!
This is IT for me.
It works! No GI problems, no side pain, no cramps. It stayed in the stomach.
No more GU or other gels for me!
I am so happy and optimistic for me next half marathon now.
Last time I did so bad at fueling during the race, I hit the wall at mile 11 and I finished completely dehydrated. I won a pukie award but I felt like crap.
They have 2 flavors of that magic stuff, I tried berry today and next week I will try vanilla.
The only negative thing would be it is a bit sweet, but I did not drink water with it and next week I will. It goes down very EASY. It does not taste bad at all. It is great.
It is not cheap but for me it will be worth every penny! I am a really low maintenance kind of gal so this will be my one crazy expense!!
So for the ones who have GI issues like I do (I have GERD, no gallbladder, gastritis) I am telling you: give this a try if the other stuff is not working for you.
OK off to watch the Aztecs play!
I have them winning so FOR TODAY ONLY AND BECAUSE MY BLUE DEVILS ARE NOT PLAYING TODAY:
So far today I got all the games right and I am still leading the pool
DUKE ALL THE WAY
