I think we might of got to the bottom of what might of happened to make things go from urgh to what on earth yesterday and might be relevant to those running longer distances.
I go through times in my life when I am very intolerant to sweeteners. I have been this way ever since the op this year and strangely enough that intolerance was transfered with the kidney. Which has made it very hard for MrRfc to find a tonic to go with his Gin😀.
Somewhere after Tower Bridge I took on some free Lucozade Sport. Unbeknown to me this product now has the addiction of sweeteners in it. Why O why they have to put sweeteners in a product you are drinking for energy is beyond me. I have known for a while that most non diet fizzy drinks have the addition of sweeteners in because I found out the hard way.
So this will of contributed to my demise around that mark as well as given me the intense hangover symptoms that I have had today, including the throwing up this morning. I am pleased that I found out because I was just about to swear off ever doing a HM again.
I have had Lucozade before but not since the op so it never occurred to me that they would give you a product with artificial sweeteners in it.
A timely reminder to not have anything you haven’t trialed before in an event. Sorry to hog with two posts today but thought it was worth the update.
