Originally posted by ChrisM Gels are pretty much liquid candy.  I have considered eating a chocolate one for dessert when the cupboards were otherwise bare (didn't though )

But of course this ^^^ is because you're trying to lose weight?  Yes?

Remembered this thread yesterday at Timberman 70.3 when I was crashing with one more lap of the run to go and just couldn't stand the thought of another Gu or Chomp. I highly doubt I would have tried the Coke had I not read this, but I grabbed one every chance I got through the next 7 miles and it worked great. Thanks.

it might be more of a mental switch.
I have NO idea how I powered back the last 8 miles, but coke was my friend that whole segment.
it does seem to have an effect whether real or not, if you believe it helps..it probably does.

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?

At 30 to 40 minutes into my run, my foot starts to go numb. If I keep going, the foot goes totally numb.

After a hard workout, I really like having a Coke or Pepsi. How bad is this for recovery and for my health? Should I stop drinking orange juice because it is loaded with (fattening) carbs and sugar?
