Aquajoes, why drop a simple Nuun or High 5 tablet into your bottle when you can fanny about with 2 plastic tubes and a measuring set.  Go and stand in the corner.

View-Speed.

I just looked up View-Speed.  Wow.  Protective goggles with a small mirror (and inverted lens?), manufactured in some chap's spare room using pliers and a bottle of Loctite, for the best part of $300.  How did they fail to take off?!

I was looking at buying those pyro thingies - turns out pedals and straps are just as good. And only ??8 or so...

Salt tabs.... hmmhhhh..... there is an increasingly large set of nutritionists that are suggesting that all electrolyte supplements, from salt tabs to special drinks, are completely unnecessary and worthless and the effects are 100% placebo!

(I know nothing though!)

Salt tabs certainly kept the majority of us going on long marches in Kenya whilst I was serving, if they work or seem to work I wouldn't class them as a flop. We also used to take ibrufen before and after any intense physical activity, did they work? Who knows, it'd certainly be frowned upon now I reckon

I remember a huge discussion about Ibuprofen, and how OMG YOU SHOULD NEVER TAKE IT AS A PREVENTATIVE MEASURE, but I can't for the life of my remember why not.

It's interesting though trying to work out what actually works and what's a placebo. Energy gels are the great placebo of running and tri in my mind. What a money spinner!

 

Doesn't ibuprofen disturb digestion or something like that? I thought I'd read/heard that it prevents carbs from doing what they should, therefore leading to bonking. Could be wrong though...often am.
