Although I use them, I don't like gels much. I find them too sweet and claggy, and I also really struggle with the attitudes of my fellow runners towards litter during events, and hundreds of discarded gel sachets contributes to that.
But hooray, my favourite fuel people have brought out tubs of gel mix that allow you to make up your own, in a flavour that I love the sound of (cacao, peppermint and ginger). They come with a wee reusable squeezy pouch. I'm really tempted to give it a go, but I still have a big box of SIS gels to get through and the new tubs of Active Root gel mix are quite big, so I'm swithering 🤔
Do you have any thoughts on the practicality of making up gels on an as-needed basis? Any experience of anything similar?
