  • [ – ] Flying_Purple_Pizzas reply Congratulations on motivating yourself to run! Well, you tried the GU. It was free. It was barfo. Another case of living and learning. When I was growing up I loved the taste of cake frosting. But then again, I was eating sugar frosted sugar cube smack flakes or whatever for breakfast every day. But ginger isn't my favorite flavor, although fresh ginger is lovely in hot tea. Not sure I would want to eat anything with a name that sounds like goo. I hope the damage it did to your body isn't permanent. Anyway, thanks for sharing your run with us!
    • therunningrebel parent reply Yeah I'm going to have to agree with you on the ginger thing. I mean, I like ginger snap cookies, but that's where I draw the line lol. I've always heard that ginger makes really nice tea, but I've never tried it. Lol yeah, it's definitely not a pleasant experience. I mean, it feels like you're eating, well goo lol. I definitely wouldn't recommend it haha.
  • [ – ] JustABloke reply Holy crap, 5:29am, are you nuts LoL, if someone tried to wake me up at that time I'd probably throw my guitar at them. No idea what that GU is but if it makes you run (and not give you the runs) then it's got to be good for you 👍 Fantastic your sticking to your goals, it really is worth it when you cross that finish line.
    • therunningrebel parent reply I was actually up at 5 am, so yes. Yes I am lol. I hate waking up this early actually, but running before the sun comes all the way up makes things slightly more pleasant for me running wise. Lol but I'm already excited for the fall and winter,when I can get up at 7 am and still be fine to run. lol GU is nasty, that's what it is! I suppose it did help me run, but it definitely made my stomach hurt, so I'd say the pros don't outweigh the cons. I'm just going to stick with my usual running fuel. It seems to work a lot better for me. Than you! At this point I've had to keep reminding myself that eventually a of this hard work is going to pay off in the fall! 😄
