Saturday – Day Before Race
Did an easy 4 miles.
Then Alex and I watched Youth Revolt
Pretty good movie, but I wouldn’t watch it again. Just one of those one time views was pretty good but not worth buying.
Sunday – 4th of July – Race Day
Big River Running Company has a mile downhill race called the Macklind Mile.
Gatorade sent me the G-Series earlier in June and I wanted to save it for Race Day.
So before my warmup I had the Prime Pre-Game Fuel.
Alex and I agreed it kind of tasted like Liquid Orange Jello. Wasn’t awful but drinking from the pouch was kind of odd.
Wished I would’ve turned my laps onto 1/4’s and not miles. Then I could’ve got my 1/4 splits.
Here’s my timing chart from my Garmin.
After the race I recovered with the Perform since I still had more to run.
Of course it was good because it’s the regular gatorade :)
Cooldown/Training Run After:
When I got back I had the Recover Drink
Absolutely awful. I took two sips and the only way I can describe it is “taste’s like cough syrup” Alex also couldn’t even drink it and he even diluted it with some water to take out the strength of it. Still not good.
So overall impression: Wasn’t impressed and won’t be purchasing the series.
However, that was just mine and Alex’s opinion and everyone has different taste buds, so I’m giving YOU a chance for some Gatorade products that were also sent with the series!!
