How long does Carb Gel take mouth to muscle & solid food like flapjack etc when doing a long sunday run of say 20 miles.
I sometimes have a flapjack an hour or so before going out on my long run. But that's mainly just because I like flapjacks, and by the time I've finished running 20 miles I'm probably going to be quite hungry anyway.
Eat real food before you run... fruit and fibre.
After that it's too late, eat sugar. Lucozade tabs do it for me.
Hydration is the issue. Drink, drink, drink...
Don't be silly.
Chemicals + drink = the unknown
Food + drink = health, if not marathon wins!
There's no need to run marathon's really.
Add up the number of peolpe you've seen floped out on the marathon's you've run with dehydration and the ones reported in the local papers with heart attacks (as resul tof stress/dehydration) and weigh it against one high profile case.
The answer to this is what is always has been, do the training.
Don't buy a puppy for Christmas.
Clunk click every trip.
If you are a twat sometimes you die, that is the message that seems to have been forgotten in our cotton wool society.

So floped with dehydration against heart attacks caused by dehydration ? You do talk an amazing amount of bollocks
Did the alarm go off on your wrist watch.
Sorry, but there is a world of real people out there who do not think that "everything is chemical man". You know RW world. Runners arn't all like you!
