B2B - Not that I wanted to drink what the elites drink but just interested if its some concoction that they make up from powders etc or if it is available commercially - sure half of it is all in the head
Its like watching London Sunday - people drinking like waters going out of fashion and cramming gels, bars and everything else down their throats. Sure half of it isn't needed, when I done London just had a decent breakfast (porridge, seeds, maybe sultanas) and had whatever energy drink was available and that was normally every 5 miles or so
Grendel - out of interest what training plan are you using for the marathon? would love to see a copy of it
Also general question all - what do the elites have in their "special" drinks? do you think its just the usual stuff (Lucozade, Gatorade or whatever) or something else not commercially sold ? Not that I need them, I could just do with a nice cup of tea every 5k !!
