I also have 39 hours to go on my practical experience. A little over half way done! There is a light at the end of this tunnel!
Good news! I have another Personal Training Potential Client.. now to call her back!
Last night I got 2 free samples of this stuff your suppose to eat while racing.. Vi Fuel.. Even thought it says Chocolate.. the other Peach Cobbler.. it just is not appealing. I'm afraid of this stuff. Every marathon/ half marathon runner swears by this stuff getting them through without hitting the wall. I know from my first 1/2 that I should have drank water and probably tried one of these or stashed away some candies.
I've read that I need to actually use this fuel and try it out before a a long run race.. I have to get over my fear.. Will I? Okay.. here it goes.. I'm going to open the chocolate and lets see what it looks like.. (I am still learning.. and I obviously have to learn the hard-way or why else would I have ran 4 miles in slip on tennis shoes with no backs!)
The ingredient list. I see caffeine .... at the very bottom, meaning it's the least amount since it's added on the label last..100 calories.. not going to waste eating this whole package...
No directions for use..
Any runners out there have any advice on when to eat this stuff during a race?
How many do you eat?
What other things do you eat besides this stuff?
Where do you stash it while running?
