Saturday: Single Track and Product Review
Headed to Boyce to ride some single track. Took my Titus HCR with the Maxxis Ignitors on. Only rode for 1:20 or so but dammmmmn it felt nice to be outside. Traction was a bit slick in the corners with a layer of leaves on top, followed by a thin layer of oily mud then dirt. It was still some sweaty-ball fun. On a day like today you just get a gut feeling that this is one of the last of the good ride days. With T-Giving coming then that other holiday in December that depresses me. These days will be few and far between. So say "balls" to the Stair Master and get you dupa outside.
PRODUCT REVIEW: GATORADE ENDURANCE FORMULA
I've been too lazy (or broke) lately to pick up some more Heed from Hammer so I've been using the last of some Accelerade I have. It's not bad but I forgot to pack some for the gym before I left for work Friday a.m. So while I was at Target at lunch they had Gatorade Endurance on sale for 99¢. So I said what the F and picked up a bottle. How bad could it be?
In a word BAD. It tastes like sweetened cough syrup. Coating the mouth with thick mucus that gags and needs to be spit out. I needed to "cut it" with water to make it drinkable thus lessening the amount of electrolytes and carbs getting to my muscles. I used it again on today's mountain bike ride just to confirm that it's that bad... and it is. I found myself not wanting to even drink it on the ride. NOT what you want from your fuel beverage. Save your money buy Hammer Heed, Accelerade or Powerbar's drinks. Scored on a 1 to 5 basis this is a 1.
Gotta split. Top Jimmy and his fam are coming over to visit and watch MSU vs. PSU.
