it is hot
washington dc is bangkok hot right now
the humidity is absurd
the news channels are telling people to stay indoors and to exercise early
well... that formula is not an option for all of us
for me... I exercise when I can
which is normally on my way home from work
leaving out of work I am normally pretty spent
work can take it out of ya
getting on the bike is refreshing
lately I have been trying to fuel up before leaving out for a ride
rather than water or gatorade I have been drinking accelerade
although I can not give any scientific data with control and experimental groups
I can say that the Accelerade does seem to fill me up more than the water or gatorade
which is good... because when it is time to slide down the dinosaur I tend to be hungry
the accelerade allows me to focus on my ride rather than my hunger
sure any liquid will satisfy a person's hunger to a certain degree
but the accelerade goes does smooth and seems to fill me up
then giving me both carbohydrates as well as protein to fuel me up for my ride
drinking the accelerade before the ride works because my work outs tend not to be that long
and I have found that accelerade tastes best chilled
gatorade is also better chilled
as well is water
a warm water bottle filled with gatorade or accelerade is far from refreshing
I would be stoked if one of these energy drinks partnered up with RED BULL
to get me hydrated and amped up!
accelerade has an online coupon
give it a try!
water is precious!
nothing beats water
so often we reach for something when we should be reaching for water
I am going to get some water right now!
