Re: [RC] Electrolytes for people - Karla Watson

They sell this electrolyte drink and/or powder you add to water that is really concentrated and doesn't taste so sweet. They sell it at hiking/mountaining stores like REI. Really helped me this last ride.
Eating different also really helped. I have a friend who is an Ironman competitor. She has a nutritionist who helps her. I ate as she suggested and felt MUCH better. Bananas, peanut butter, cooked pasta, bagels. Stuff that is simplier to digest. Drink electrolyte drinks 24-48 hours prior to ride instead of just on ride day. No alcohol, sugar, caffeine 24-48 hours prior.
