How long does Carb Gel take mouth to muscle & solid food like flapjack etc?

Which I guess is the reason that DTES doesn't think all runners are retards that need his guidance.  But I don't understand why the trolling basket is stalking me.

You're making no sense Canute.

Dave isn't stalking you - he's already posted on the thread.

Maybe you're stalking him ?

No Cougie, sorry, he pops up all the time... very limited.

some threads on this website are becoming very bizarre.

Anyway drink in moderation and gels about 20 minutes to kick in. Personally I cant chew when running so flap jacks arent an option.

lots of weirdos about at the mo on here!

I wouldn't touch gels. Whn I was young and knaive i took em, and threw up.  Who needs that many calories/carbs and even if you did, how is your body going to break em down.  Better off with sugar cubes.

PAC76 it's called bullying, work it out yourself.

Interesting .... Checking back all I suggested was what ever you are thinking of using, try it out whilst you are training..

That way you can see if flapjack, gels, chemicals, foam bananas or even pork pies work for you

I've just done the Rome marathon today, normally I use gels but didn't bring any, thought I'd buy some at the expo, but they wanted ??2-3 each for a gel?! So I thought they could go stuff 'em selves!

Bought the cheapest jelly sweets I could find, ate one every mile (never done this before, I don't try things out in training, don't take extra energy in training) and I was literally buzzing with energy, shame my legs were knackered!

So I don't know, I don't know how long gels take to digest or sweets, but I'll never waste my money on gels again.

Well done Lardy. I'll take your advice on this one. Have a cracking recovery evening.
