Ok, had my first good trial of this stuff today. Rained this morning, so the usual group ride did go. Abotu 16:00, the clouds finally cleared out, nice and hot, and away I went. The heat index was about 105 - 108 DEGF, tapering off to 99 by the time I got back.
I decided to give this stuff a hard trial, since no group to worry about. Mixed two bottles full strength for the ride. Usually, I start drinking after 10-15 minutes, taking a 2-4 oz shot every 10-15 minutes. Today, I went 30 hard minutes (80 % HMR) before touching a bottle, then slugged down half of a 24 oz bottle. Kept doing that pattern for two hours. And it worked!. Other sport drinks I have tried would have had me hurting under this protocol, with serious stomach upset. Today, just a small twinge, which may have been all between my ears. LowOz performed just like the hype, emptying out of my stomach fast, rapid rehydration. Even with 48 oz drank on the ride, I was still down 1 pound weight when I got home. Another fine, warm day in Cajun country.
