Hi all, I'm in need of a new running pack and was looking at the ultimate direction PB adventure vest. It says in the blurb that it's compatible for women but just checking if any ladies out there haVE any experience using it?
Towards the end of a Half or Full marathon I tend to completely tank (especially in the Full marathon) as i get to a point in a race where i can't keep any carbs down ... i usually manage 2-3 gel shots but then can't stomach any more. I've done cross-country ultra-marathons when i'm doing more walking/jogging i can eat protein (especially boiled eggs!) and that works but obviously can't do that on the run. Are there any protein shots available or something you'd suggest to get me to the end?
oh i'm so excited now ... as long as the shin splints hold out ... and i'm also taking all my breakie with me to have Sunday morning (we're staying in the 5th arrondisement so it's a bit of a trek to the start). Re gels, in the past after about 3 hours i have trouble keeping anything down but i'm wondering if it's because I'm not drinking enough (because i have trouble keeping water down as well). How much water do people drink before taking a gel?
