I'm always a little unsure about what to do for fueling during long runs. Often I just stick with water, but as my long runs increase in distance I know I need to play around with what will keep me going. A trip this weekend to Rock/Creek meant a chance to buy some new goodies to try out.
Today, I tried 2 new things:
1. GU Chomps (Cranberry Apple w/Caffeine)
2. Nuun electrolyte tablets
I'm pretty happy that this combination worked, I felt like I drank a bit less water than normal but felt just a hydrated, which is a good thing. I also avoided any, um..."G.I. issues". Let's just leave it at that.
How/when do you fuel for long runs?
