Offical drink at Gold Coast... try it first??
Posted 25 April 2004 - 07:13 PM
Are other running trying out the PB electrolyte drink during their training? It is much more expensive that Gatorade (in tins) but is there any difference? I would like to buy this product over Gatorade as PB is Australian but at double the price.....ummm...
has it given others tummy upsets?? I have used the PB gels and have no problems.

You can always use your own at the GC marathon - and drop it off the day before.

Your gels and food are more critical to get right in training.

PB has higher sodium (145mg per 250ml compared to 102mg); higher potassium (45mg per 250ml compared to 29mg); and PB also contains magnesium & chloride which are important electrolytes to help prevent cramping. PB's main ingredient is maltodextrin, making it a less sweet tasting drink compared to the sucrose laden Gatorade. For me, this makes it esier to palate for sessions lasting several hours.
The price is a barrier, but do yourself a favour & buy a tin to use on your long runs leading up to the big event. You won't be disapointed & at least you'll have the confidence of knowing you've tried the product out in training before race day.
And before anyone asks - No I'm not sponsored by PB but I wish I was! :D
