Wogged 8 miles. Product Test: Strawberry Banana PowerBar Energy Gel. December 27, 2010.

Wogged 8 miles.
During my wog, everything was great until my vision went pitch black. For a few seconds, I thought something was wrong with me until I realized it was a power outage.
Product test: Strawberry Banana PowerBar Energy Gel.
Power Bar gels have more sodium than many other brands.  Extra sodium can reduce muscle cramps.
I am currently testing out some gels in search of a more runnier gel for cold weather use.  The Strawberry Banana PowerBar Energy Gel definitely met my cold weather gel needs; it is more runnier than GU gels.  It tastes like children's medicine, but it's livable. Will love the extra sodium when needed; I am hoping it will bust some cramps.

  1. Mae-have you tried Hammer gels?they are a lot more viscous than Gu or Power. It may be what you are looking for. Apple Cinnamon is the best flavor IMHO

  2. @Glenn - Thanks, Glenn, for the suggestion. I'll probably try those also. Currently, I'm loving the extra sodium in the PowerBar gels. I'm also looking for cramp busting gels for warmer and humid climates.
