During one of my recovery runs earlier this week I was feeling a bit low in energy and was constantly slowing down to keep my heart rate in the training zone. This has happened before and I put it down to needing more carbohydrate in my diet. I have since increased my carbohydrate intake and that seems to have done the trick. Todays Long Run is in the graph above.
- 60gr Glucose
- Sachet of salt (McDonalds/BurgerKing)
- 1L of Water flavoured with cordial
This drink gives 50gr of Carbohydrate per Litre and the reason for using the sachet of salt is because it's an exact measurement.
