For the last few evenings I have had stomach cramps, I talked it over with Cory and we ruled out lady issues, food related discomfort and exercise related soreness. Last night Cory suggested that a lack of electrolytes might be causing my discomfort so we stopped and picked up some gatorade. After drinking half a bottle I was feeling much better and within a half and hour my cramps were completely gone. I didn’t think I had been working out that hard this week so I was relying on just water and not taking in any nutrition with electrolytes. But on reflection all of my workouts have been at least 90 minutes in a warm gym. Lesson learned, I need to be taking in electrolytes even during the week for my short workouts.
Have you ever had these issues? I have heard of people taking salt tabs but I don’t know much about it, I have relied on gatorade so far. Today I am branching out and trying nuun on my 50 mile bike ride.
nuun ready to goWinston wants to try it too
I will let you know how I like it. Happy Saturday =)
