Often people ask me about what they should and shouldn’t be drinking Electrolytes for Training. Recently I set myself a goal of doing an endurance run. I have never been a long distance runner as it is definitely not my strongest point. So I set myself a goal and decided to undertake a half marathon - yep a crazy 21km run!
I started my prep by speaking with a few different people from training backgrounds about prepping, they gave me lots of mixed reviews whether I should be drinking “sports drinks” (no names will be labelled in this article), add salt to water, only drink water, don’t use mixed powders. That’s when I decided it was time to open up the textbooks and do some serious reading.
