Which sports drink?

Carrie asks

Hi Lee,

I was wondering what sports drink/electrolyte replacement you recommend?  I've just found out that I am low in sodium, potassium and magnesium which I am assuming is from sweating. At this stage I have just been drink water but I'm obviously going to have to use a sports drink or such to keep my electrolytes up.

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,

Hi Carrie,

There are numerous sports drinks for you to try from Powerade, Gatorade, Powerbar, Endura and even Staminade.

In the race, they will be supplying Powerade Lemon - Lime. I would try using that so you can get used to it and be comfortable using it in your race.
