Last year, when I was training for IMAZ, I used EFS liquid gel and LOVED it. I used it on long run and long ride days, not exclusively, but as my main source of calories. I never got tired of it. I raced IMAZ with it but by the last 10k of the run, I was OVER it. Completely and utterly. I thought if I took one more swig, I would hurl. So, I left about $15 worth in the lg bottle at the hotel, and figured when I started training long, I would just buy a new bottle, which I did, last week($30). So I went out for a 60 mi ride yesterday and figured I should start using it again since I am racing in April. Ya, I took my 1st swig about 45 min into my wkout and felt "blech". It was cold, the gel was kinda thick, I figured, next time it'll be better. It wasn't. It did thin out a bit as it warmed up, but the texture and flavor just grossed me out, and as a result, I didn't take in enough and, as we all know, that doesn't end in a great ride :(. I am gonna try it again next weekend, and take other stuff with me just in case, but I'm SOOOO BUMMED! The whole formula just worked for me nutritionally. UGH! Just venting.
