Gatorade vs PowerBar vs GU

by - Monday, August 13, 2007

Still not back at school so still no beach pictures. Probably not til the end of the week.

Ran this morning for about 30 minutes, walked the last five minutes home. It was hot and humid again. I should have left earlier. The hills at home are killer because I'm so used to running on the flatness around school.

But the real reason I'm writing up this quick post is because the story that I mentioned I was writing way in the beginning of summer comparing the five hundred million things runners (and other endurance athletes too) can use to help in there training (i.e. Clif Bars, Gels, Jelly Belly Sports Beans, etc.) finally was released on the wire and a couple papers have started to run it.

I figured you might all be interested in the findings so here's the link to the story in a few papers. (I'll include the three that I've found so far, sometimes papers de-activate their links pretty quickly so if one doesn't work I apologize. They all worked as of right now when I'm posting them.)

Gels, bars and drinks can boost workout energy,
