Everyone is runner these days so will be sold out in no time.
the last time i brought from SiS some of the packs were short dated. one box only had about 5 weeks left of its use by date and the others had a few months. so just be careful if you stock up on a lot

Muhahaha
I’ve tried these before and not noticed a peak in energy levels. White monsters are probably cheaper and a better option.

Ha ha whats the furthest you have run using just water?
Heat!
Used these when training for a marathon and I would say their gels are the most palatable that I tried, didn't have any issues with them and some of the flavours (apple particularly) tasted quite nice.
Defo a recreational runner myself, used water until half marathon but anything over that you need something to keep you going!

If have gone for this, but I just can't bring myself to pay £4 delivery these days!

14 miles......I don't take a drink with me ever, bomb a cup of water before I leave house, my usual running length is 8 miles

Yup my mate who does a lot of marathons said the same....I've only done 14 miles, and didn't need anything or feel like I did, that was cold weather though.

Got some of these the other day... Only a couple had expiration dates in July, most were at the end of the year or beyond. Don't hold me to account if yours are different though

No.idea what you're on about pal....I run 25-30 miles a week alone, love it, keeps me on the level makes feel less guilty when I stuff my face Sat night.

I literally have no.idea what the term recreational runner means.

You can definitely run 25-30 miles a week using just water.

However, when it comes to marathon or ultra-marathon runs - there is no way you can perform well on just water. Your body will be completely energy depleted after 2 hours or so.

Yeah agreed, I know that I have friends that do all that & use energy stuff.....but for general running I've never needed anything, but know loads of runners that do. Still, each to their own i guess but if someone is running 20k to maintain weight & takes a couple of energy gels, that's half the calories right there

I average about 1,300 kcals on a 20km run. Gels are between 80 and 90 kcals each

They are best before dates rather that use by. Given the contents, and in my experience, there is no difference in using them well past the date.

Yup so you've just reinforced my point, someone running 10k burns 6-700 calories & can do 300+ calories easy enough on sports drinks / gels....20km = 12 mile's which gives some wiggle room for a gel or two, but like I said I've never run a half marathon in my life & had a gel.....water before & maybe a banana.

Everyone different, but personally i think it's marketing convincing average short distance runners to buy stuff they don't need. I did actually take a gel once a guy at work have me a couple to try, they tasted like **** & did absolutely nothing

No you just haven't bothered to read the recommended usage. You generally only use gels when you exercise over 90 mins, so you wouldn't use them on a 10k - says that clearly on the site. I typically use 3 on a half marathon, so on your original point its 240 Kcal in vs 1,300 out.

I can easily run a half without them, I can do it without water as well, and also with a hangover - performance is different in each scenario

I already said I don't use them, I said there is a huge amount of people do that run 10k & do, and / or energy drinks they are the ones that don't read not me......I just don't think you need them for a half, end of.....also re hangovers, I've run some of my fastest times with a hangover. There are lots of other variables, temperature, wind speed, inclines etc, so of people are linking performance to gels it would be inconclusive, but the manufacturers know that only too well

But your the one on here saying they are a waste of money, not needed and quoting calories incorrectly - not them.
You're arguing about their use but self-confessed to having never used them correctly, so really just trolling.

The science behind it is simple and very well proven

Oh give it a rest, if you can't be bothered to read my comments properly, or are illiterate it's not my fault, here it is in bullet points in the hope you will stfu

You do not need gels in runs under 13 miles or 70-90 mins, the body will cope with this distance if you have adequate energy on board when leave for run.
If you use gels AND sports drinks on a 10k run you'll easily do 300+ calories.
A slow release breakfast (porridge) or banana and maybe a cup of water is all is required for a run up to 13 miles. I have run at least 50 half marathons so know from personal experience.
I tried 2 gels on a 13 mile run after a friend have them to me, they did absolutely nothing....except taste like ****

If people want to use them, fine, but in my opinion they are an absolute waste of money for short distance running, and if I was running a marathon then I'd use something else anyway. There are far cheaper alternatives to give your body energy before a run, & they are also far healthier than this liquid sugar.

The 'science' is about energy, not about gels.... read up on some sports science & educate yourself a bit. Just because you like them, not everyone else does, if I want to give my views I will.
