FAQ: I am a trail runner, how do I use the EnduraPower?
A: Use EnduraPower for all your long events and for daily training. This is how:
Daily Training: Shorter runs, i.e up to ~2 hours. (Mix EnduraPower the night before and leave in the fridge).
- Option 1: Wake up, drink as much of your mixed EnduraPower as you can, put it back in the fridge… go for your run. When you get back from your run, finish off what is left of your EnduraPower.
- Option 2: Get used to running with a hydration pack, even if your run is short.
- Track/Hills/Speed work: Take your mix of EnduraPower with you to these sessions. Start sipping before and then sip in-between each sprint. Finish of what is left at the end of the session.
Longer Distances: > = 3 hours. Simply mix EnduraPower into your hydration pack. EnduraPower is super-economical!
Taste Fatigue Solved!
Most trail runners like to alternate between EnduraPower and GT Gel. For example, most trail runners will do the first 2-3 hours of an event on EnduraPower and then the following 2-3 hours on GT Gel, continuing to switch throughout the event, between the two formulas. In this way, they are able to avoid taste fatigue.
Note: When you decant GT Gel into our Pace & Power little pocket-sized gel bottle, there is enough fuel and electrolytes in the pocket bottle for ~ 3 hours of high heart rate racing or training WITH WATER ONLY in your hydration pack!
For long distances, we suggest our REFRESHING EnduraPower low flavour: “Lemon-Aid” or flavour-less option: “Neutral Quench”.
Suggested dosage according to bodyweight.
Please note however: Personal preference, type and intensity of your sport, training history, gender, age, medical history, ambient temperature all affect hydration rate. Please discuss you hydration strategy with your medical doctor.
