I tried some new energy gels today...they're 100% natural and are actually GREAT tasting! They're made by Ignite Naturals ( http://ignitenaturals.com/). There is no caffeine, Gluten and Lactose free and are made with organic Fig as the base product. They tasted like a fig-newton but not as dry. :) I had the Blackberry Blueberry kind this morning. It says to take 15 minutes before you exercise but I took it right before I started along with a half cup of water. I ended up running on the treadmill today running at 9 mph (6:40 pace). I didn't notice much of a difference until I hit about 12 minutes or so...I felt a bit of a renewal. My shoulders and neck even relaxed and I felt that way through the rest of the workout. I don't know if it was the Ignite Naturals gel or just getting warmed up, but I should also state I went through all the "Coach Jay" workouts under ZVideos before I started running...
Also, In the past, when I'm not used to using gels, I would get side aches, but not today. All in all, I enjoyed my run today and felt the Ignite Naturals Energy Gel worked great! I'll definitely be trying them again! Mitch
