Hydrating properly is absolutely essential to keeping you fluid throughout your many athletic endeavors; from trail to road to water. Proper hydration also inspires greater comfort and enjoyment along the way. There can be gain without the pain after all! Dehydration of even 2-3% can slow you down, and dehydration and sodium loss are also the number one cause of cramping, so you'll need to replace 16-24oz of fluid for every pound lost to help avoid this. Consuming consistent amounts of sodium every hour can help replace sodium losses in sweat. Simple investment - HUGE payoff!
SHOT BLOKS are best to consume15-30 minutes prior to activity, and then every 20-30 minutes during activity. Three (3) of those yummy BLOKS are considered one (1) serving, but it's really up to you how many you eat. They're conveniently portioned to provide personalized pop'ability! Electrolyte Chews help increase blood sugar levels and maintain even energy levels. Prolong performance - avoid the crash. Keep in mind that Bloks will affect your blood sugar levels more slowly than gel since they are semi-solid, so it's best to follow up with a swig of water. BLOK on and enjoy the St. George Marathon!
