Been kinda sore over here, but hanging in there! Yesterday our large run took us out to Marymoor Park for 90 minutes. I took the opportunity to try a couple of energy products: an actual GU-brand Gu (Orange) and Clif Blocks (Strawberry). The GU…its so weird eating/drinking that stuff. The flavor was ok, but the energy boost was lackluster. The blocks though…wow. Strawberry fruit snacks! Makes me wonder just what the hell was in the ACTUAL fruit snacks I ate as a child. Energy level…still not great.
I’m not sure what the deal is. The product I tried before was a Power Bar-branded Gu thing and its result was instantaneous even if the flavor was completely awful. I think I need to do a bit more experimenting with products before committing to something.
Definitely lookin forward to getting out there again today to do a recover run. My legs are sore but I know I’ll feel better the sooner we get out there. As always, many thanks for your donations!
