which is better for long runs
Go = PSP22 + electrolyes
I tend to always use Go as I'm a very salty sweater. I'll start using gels (in addition to the fluid) if I'm out for more than about 2.15, the first after an hour then 45 min intervals thereafter.
Edited for clarity.
I use 'Go' in the summer when it's hot and PSP22 the rest of the time. I usually drink 0.5ltr about 1-2hrs before my run (only for runs over 12 miles or tough sessions). I then have 0.5ltr of 'Rego' when I get in. When running 20mi or over I'll carry 130mls of either but don't usually finish it. I also carry 130mls of 'Go' during a marathon, during which I usually do finish it unless like at Abingdon last year, I drop it after 10mi.
I get headaches without electrolytes, these make quite a difference for me...
