Good morning or good afternoon from this side of the world.
Yes, that’s me first thing in the morning.
But I have my coffee, that might be why I’m smiling.
I didn’t buy new shoes yesterday, I was able to resist the temptation.
But look what I found:
Salted caramel GU.
I’ve read so much about this new flavor (great marketing GU, congrats on that), but wondered if I’d ever see it here in Israel.
Well, I did! Bought me a few.
I can’t even believe that finding a particular GU flavor at the store is making me this happy. I almost sat in my car right then and there and tried it, but decided against it. It would have been a waste of sugar consumption.
Also GU chomps which I’ve been meaning to try.
You wouldn’t believe how expensive this stuff is around here…
I still have a box of 24 assorted flavors GU gels from when I was in the US last month, but you can never have too many.
That little packet on the right is an Israeli gel, they gave me a sample. I haven’t tried it yet but I will. I love that it’s local, what I don’t like already is that it’s smaller than a regular GU (or other brands), 60 calories instead of 100. And the consistency seems too liquidy, which I’m not sure I will like.
Easy run this morning, 15 minutes warm up (walking and light jogging), and 35 minutes of tempo running at a relatively comfortable pace, 05:00 Min/KM (08:03 Min/Mile).
I did this on the treadmill and it got boring. That pace would have been easier to run outside.
Plus 20 minutes of abs.
Not the most enjoyable workout but you gotta do what you gotta do.
If you use gels, what’s your favorite flavor?
Mine so far is the GU Espresso Love and GU Chocolate Outrage. They both have caffeine in them (40mg and 20mg respectively) so that’s a bonus for me.
