Hi all - wondering if anyone has an opinion on which of SIS PSP22 or SIS Go powdered drinks would be more suitable for runs of 16miles+ ? Or shall I just take water and have some Go gels if need be? Not been taking anything on my long runs recently and have felt pretty rough for the remainder of the day...(and the next).

You'll need to figure that out for yourself, but PSP22 and GO are intended for different uses.

You need to see which one works for you and go from there.

I use water and go gels, done the trick for my last 16 miler

yes - also decided to stick with water and maybe some go gels. Also going down the choccy milk route for recovery and am splashing out on some for goodness ones....

Find out what will be given out at your target marathon and practice on that. If it is just water, then just take water and take the gels you intend to use at the required points, ideally whilst running to practice fueling on the move.

The fitter you become, the further you can run without needing fuel / drinks. But for recoveries sake it is best to take something most of the time.

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.

ww: try Fridge milkshakes for a recovery drink; best thing I've ever tasted......after beer that is.

I get headaches without electrolytes, these make quite a difference for me...
