Ever got the Employee of the Month at the local coffeehouse and you don't even work there? I read this online recently, and chuckled. Everyone who works with me, knows that I don't function until after the first (the most important) coffee of the day.
But how can coffee help you with your training?
Well, a perfectly brewed cortado, (espresso with the perfect amount of hot milk) can be a little tricky to come by when three quarters through a marathon...
Enter: Caffeinated Gels!
There's a great variety of brands. Which tastes and works the best? Press play to find the answer:
A little extra shot of caffeine can definitely help not only with your race time, but also to make the experience more fun / less painful.
But please remember to drink water too! Otherwise you will be cursing me when your tummy cramps up.
Wishing you a wizzzzzingly fast next run ;)
