That sounds kind of weird….we have been discussing what types of quick sugar we take with us when we go on a long run. By long run we usually mean 7 + miles.
Allison has had success with the following:
Clif Shot Bloks (pic via: http://www.pezcyclingnews.com/photos/tech/xmas05/clif-bloks-full.jpg )
And also Luna Moons (pic via: fitsugar)
Joanna has tried gels….and her gag reflex kicked in (that’s not hard to do, she will gag at the drop of a hat)….she has found more success in regular old jelly beans! (pic source)
We put them in our pockets (or in a baggie in our sports bra) and usually eat them about halfway through our run. Or if you are like Allison you can eat them at your desk at work…like a fruit snack. Sort of.
