I tried a vanilla and a chocolate Accel Gel for the first time on my 15 mile run. They were overly sweet and were the thinnest consistency I've ever had. Accel Gels are different from most gels because they contain protein. I felt good while running and post-run, too, except for mild stomach cramps, but sometimes I get those.
I tried them because they were on sale at Academy for 75 cents - half price. I prefer gel to be thicker and less sweet, but I would use them if they helped me to run better - more experimenting needed.
Soon, for the first time, my husband and I will be traveling out of the US for a vacation. We're going to Norway, Scotland and London! I can't wait to see Scottish castles, have tea in London, maybe see a Norwegian fjord, run in other countries and take hundreds of pictures.
First stop: Norway! I've read that many people speak English, but I'd like to learn a few Norwegian words before we go.
Hello = Hallo
Goodbye = Ha det
I do not understand = Jeg forstår ikke
I really need to memorize the last phrase... I really need to learn how to pronounce it. Ha det!
