Cutting out sugars has been linked to mitochondrial health and immune function, but there's a lot of contributing factors. Likely, it's a combination of eating healthier and being more active - being physically active keeps your lymphatic system clear of debris, which also helps your body clear out toxins.
Congrats on the Half Ironman! Keep it up.
I graduated from college and am around less people and less public spaces too.
I don't think the electrolytes in Powerade Zero are balanced or measured for recovery. I think that product is created for taste.
I drink it myself but I don't rely on it.
It's possible the NUUN tablets are similar.
They're certainly not made for taste either.
These are all awesome suggestions, thanks! Wish philly was a little more tri friendly. I was spoiled growing up the pocono area - always a pool or lake to swim in and countless empty rolling roads. I've been living down this way for a little over a year and it's a pretty big change from what I'm used to. Thanks all!
I'm going up there in August. What's a cool place (near the race track) to swim and picnic for the day when my SO gets sick of racing?
