My Long Distance "Runner's Cocktail"

On long distance days, the products listed below have helped me feel at my best during longer runs.

Quick summary:

1 hour before run - drink 1 serving of Spark® with 2 tablets of O2 GOLD® and, optional choice, take 1 capsule of Thermoplus®.

How the above products help you perform:

Spark®'s unique blend of 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients work together to provide a healthy and balanced source of energy. Spark® does contain an effective amount of caffeine to give you a quick energy boost plus B vitamins to enhance your body's natural ability to produce and sustain its own energy. O2 Gold®'s ingredients work in combination to help individuals get the most from their activities by optimizing the body's use of oxygen and can help increase the resistance to certain types of physical, mental and chemical stress. Again, take both Spark® and O2 Gold® 1 hour before your long run.

advocare product - Spark for mental focus and long-lasting energy

--- SPARK® ---
About an hour before running, drink 1 serving of Spark®. Spark® improves mental focus and provides long-lasting energy.
advocare product - O2 Gold helps increase energy and maximize performance

--- O2 GOLD® ---
One hour before your run, take 2 tablets (1 serving) of O2 Gold®. O2 Gold® supports body's use of oxygen helping it adapt to stress and helps increase and maintain energy.

I tell my runner friends, "You will feel like you are cheating!" O2 Gold® literally helps you breath easier.
Optional recommendation :
advocare product - Thermoplus for improved metabolism of fat to energy

--- ThermoPlus® ---
I have found that ThermoPlus® gives me a little extra edge in regards to energy. I like to take it an hour before my run along with the O2 Gold®. The claim for ThermoPlus® is better fat conversion for improved energy thus boosting metabolism. From experience, I have noticed it helps!

Note: This cocktail works well for runs over 1 hour. For shorter runs, try Spark ® alone or O2 Gold® alone or maybe combine the two depending on the intensity of the shorter run.

My Difficult Long Distance "Runner's Cocktail"

The next two products really help get me through my tougher long runs. Personally, I like drinking this next "Runner's Cocktail" 30 minutes before my tougher long runs. If the run is not over 1 hour plus a challenging pace, this cocktail combined with the Spark® /O2 Gold® combo is a bit too much. Just like anything else, whether you are trying new shoes, clothing, or either of these cocktails, test during training runs and not on race day.

Quick Summary:

30 minutes before run, mix 1 scoop of Arginine Extreme® , 4 ounces of orange juice, 1 scoop of Mango Pineapple Rehydrate® plus 12 ounces of water.

How Arginine Extreme® and Rehydrate® help you perform:

Arginine Extreme® helps increase muscle endurance and stamina during cardio workouts. Rehydrate® provides nutrients to help maintain proper metabolism, delay the onset of fatigue, and hydrate your body by re-establishing your electrolyte balance. Rehydrate® has a 1:1 ratio of sodium and potassium, two of the most vital electrolytes lost when we sweat. Overall, Rehydrate® includes antioxidants (vitamins A and C), carbohydrates, electrolytes, Sustamine® and other nutrients that effectively promote optimal hydration and recovery.

Keep in mind -- these recommendations are for runs lasting longer than 1 hour.

30 minutes before running:
Mix 1 scoop of Arginine Extreme™, 4 ounces orange juice, 1 scoop Mango Pineapple Rehydrate® plus 8 to 12 oz. of water.

Used as a pre-workout supplement, Arginine Extreme™ helps muscle endurance and stamina during cardiovascular focused workouts.
advocare product - rehydrate for hydration

--- REHYDRATE® ---
Rehydrate® contains necessary carbs for energy production and muscle endurance plus minerals and electrolytes to maintain hydration.

In regards to taste, the above mixture is my personal favorite.

The orange juice pairs well with the Mango Pineapple flavor of Rehydrate® plus adds a little more carbs, vitamin C, and potassium.
