Sports Nutrition

I've always used Hammer Endurolytes for my electrolyte needs.

It's always been a real pain to get.

For what ever reason, I can never seem to find it anywhere in Canada....... I usually have a bicycle shop order me some.



I recently discovered that I can order them online and have them shipped to my home.

I got adventurous and decided to try some Hammer gels (I'm normally a Gu, Clif Shot, and Carboom gal).

I love the Hammer chocolate...... It's so good, you could drizzle it over ice cream. I was even surprised to find that I didn't hate the banana.

Do you try new sorts of nutrition? What are your staples?

Gotta run.

I hope you like them as much as I do!

I've been using the Stinger waffles before some runs, they are really good and could even be eaten just as a snack. I'm not much on gels but will usually just have one or two during a marathon, brand doesn't matter much to me.

I've always used Gu, mainly tri berry or chocolate outrage. I am planning on trying some different ones like Hammer in the build up to my next race. I know some options do have a more branched/longer chain maltodextrose or other sugar combinations, which can result in a more efficient sugar source for a longer period of time. I'll let you know what I find.

Thanks William. It's always good to hear about what others are using in terms of nutrition. I find that my needs change slightly from year to year.
