Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review: HIGH5 EnergyGels Part Deux!

So today I took my second set of HIGH5 gels, OrangePlus with Caffeine and CitrusBurst for a spin. Given my last HIGH5 experience, I chose to dilute them both in water, rather than eat them. So let’s get to it! Flavour: 3/10 Meh again. Honestly once diluted in water it’s impossible to tell any of […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review Episode 3: HIGH5 EnergyGel in Apple and SummerFruits

For the third instalment of my energy products review series, I tried out my first gels: HIGH5 EnergyGel in Apple and in SummerFruits.

For the second episode of my energy supplement reviews series, I took a 15 mile run with Clif Shot Bloks in Tropical Punch Flavor + Caffeine! I didn’t get very much sleep last night and I left my run a little too late in the morning after my meagre bagel and cream cheese breakfast, so […]

Technology Review: Zombies, Run! app

So, for my first energy product test I chose the mild-sounding Sports Bean by Jelly Belly in Lemon Lime flavor… Flavor: 10/10 These beans taste like your classic run-of-the-mill Jelly Bellys. There’s no strange aftertaste or funny consistency. I would honestly eat them even if I weren’t exercising! Convenience: 7/10¬†They aren’t sticky or messy and […]

Between the Toes Blisters: The Ballerina Solution

Taking a cue from prima ballerinas, you can ease painful toe rubbing on long runs by using toe spacers and toe pads designed for use in pointe shoes! Layer them on under your socks and shoes and you’re good to go! They should fit snugly, but not too tight in standard running shoes. I’m not […]

Lazy Blogging, Late Stats, Paula Deen, Grisly Disney, Civil Rights, Food Overload & Mizuno’s

I have been such a shite blogger over the last several weeks. I’m sorry. Things started out so well. Let’s start over together: Hi, I’m Amanda. This one time I went for a run and a bird shit on me. Okay, so what’s the craic? What’s been happening? I worked Taste of London last week […]
