Doing a 6h-ish run in May. I did a 20 miler the other week with a mate and died a bit on hills last 2 or 3 miles. Apart from being a whole lot fitter than me, she was carrying next to nothing. I had a bumbag with roughly what I'd take on the day ...but it got me thinking about how little I can take and get weight down.
So, trying to avoid a camelbak, and using a small bottle and fairly frequent water stops... is there such a thing as a nuun-like tablet that'll give me energy, rather than just an electrolyte balance?
I can stomach gels if I have to, but don't want to rely on them for all my calories. My new secret weapon is hot cross buns chopped into quarters. I'll pop a few jelly babies too. But interested in the drink thing.
Where do you get your energy?
