Foodie Friday- Make your own sports drink

Foodie Friday- Make your own sports drink RunThrough Running Club London


This week we are bringing to you a short but sweet recipe to create your own sports drink.

These are so easy to make, a lot cheaper than buying and you know what is going into them!

For shorter sessions (less than 1hr) you won’t need to take these on. However, for the longer sessions (1hr+) they are something which need to be considered, especially when the weather is warmer and you sweat more.

1. Fluid – 500ml water – rehydrate! 💦
2. Electrolytes – a pinch of salt – replace electrolyte losses with sodium & potassium 🧂
3. Carbohydrates – 500ml fruit juice – replenish glycogen stores with carbs🧃
