I’m into the 5th week of my TR journey and I’m loving it. On SSB1 and already getting faster and seeing the improvements. I’m currently trying to get my nutrition dialed and toying with the idea of mixing my own energy drink for on the bike, but I’m curious to know… How many of you out there prefer to mix your own energy drinks as opposed to using the conveniently pre-made shop-bought branded ones (i.e tabs or powders)?
If you answered yes, what do you do when you’re on the bike for multiple hours (long outdoor rides) and need to top up your energy drink, do you take additional mixes with you and how do you store it?
If no, I’m equally interested in your reasons too.
I personally think I will trial mixing my own. Especially with all the great tips I’ve read on this forum. Previously I have always gone with the convenient pre-made branded route but it’ll end up pretty pricey if I stay as consistent as I plan to.
Looking forward to seeing which way this swings.
