Made me like the carbs
I am happy to announce the completion of the IRUNmom ISORUN isotonic drink primarily for endurance training / competitions.
I am also proud that Gábor Kindl (Enduraid), one of Hungary’s most renowned experts in nutritional supplementation, training and racing, helped with the preparation of the drink.
What is it?
Lemon-lime flavored, high-carbohydrate and mineral-rich food for athletes and heavy physical workers, with sugar and sweetener. – This is the official definition.
But what’s behind it? What’s the story? Because it is not just a new product, this product has a soul and passion is one of the
I have never been a good refresher. Mostly I didn’t do it. It was one of the weakest links during my preparations, I would say. I do not like to overdo things, I do not take thousands of vitamins, I did not refresh on my workouts with anything other than water and on the races rather with organic things (banana, melon, tomato). I did not use gels, pre-workout carbohydrate refills, post-workout regenerating powders or during workout isotonic drinks (except the bike), protein concentrates.
It was only recently that I started using magnesium and salt tablets. I consider it problematic. But it is necessary. Ever since I do triathlon, it has been an even more critical part of my preparation to refill, but most importantly to the race.
Many people say that good refreshment will improve the result.
I’d rather say that good refreshment helps you get the work out that you put into preparation during weeks / months. A good refreshent is a catalyst.
Who do I recommend it to?
Primarily for hobby athletes, mainly for endurance sports enthusiasts.
I recommend it to those who haven’t found their refreshment, who are skeptical, who don’t like experimenting, who want a good solution, and who want to spend time exercising rather than in the witch’s kitchen. Because I’m like this, and it made things easier for me after 12 years.
What does it contain?
All that is needed during a prolonged workout, that we use, which is lost and have to replenished during muscle function:
carbohydrates (maltodextrin, Palatinose) and electrolytes (sodium, chloride, calcium, potassium, magnesium).
Why isotonic? (adequate for blood osmotic pressure)
More and more hobby athletes have stomach problems. The primary reason for this is that during heavy exercise (increased muscle work, cardiac work, lung work) the physical functions that are secondary to sports activities are reduced, so that digestion does not work with the usual efficiency.
During refreshing, it is important to make sure that the body uses the least amount of energy for absorption. The work of the stomach and cells must be assisted.
We can support this with the right nutrient composition and its ideal dilution.
By consuming ISORUN, your body receives the nutrients in the most ideal state for absorption.
There is no need to drink water, so the body does not have to work with the compound.
So for me, this is the ideal product that solves the buzz around the refreshment, which I don’t have to compile from multiple components, without having to spend a lot of time theoretically or practically, but incorporating everything I really need to concentrate on running – what I really like.
ISORUN gives me this ready solution.
It made me like carbohydrates – the psychic mechanisms
Carbohydrates are critical components of a meal, in conventional words, kind of mummy. Diet and carbohydrates are not fond of each other. Training and good carbohydrates, on the other hand, take on a different meaning for athletes.
It was not easy to switch my mind to this latter relationship because as a woman I am quite body conscious and I was overwhelmed with the “dread” of carbohydrate over many years and somehow had to fool myself as I began to get interested in the long distances.
Solid, gel-like, overly sweet, nauseating supplements are not good for distracting me from the idea of eating “sweets” full of sugar, but IsoRUN, a well-diluted, non-sweet, refreshing liquid, is.
Somehow, my brain does not perceive fluid as food, even if it has the right nutritional value, and I think I’m not alone in this sensual disappointment.
The new trend – liquid only refreshment
We like to learn from elite athletes. Even if we know that as a hobbyist we should not follow their preparation, as our bodies are moderately adapted to the workload. But tricks can be dropped off and applied properly at our own level.
If we delve into the racing and triathlon field of the current elites, we can see that liquid-based food refills only are becoming more common.
Not by chance. Their “inventions” must be transformed into a hobby level. This is what ISORUN is aiming for. I already have
success with it.
How much should you consume and how frequently?
It depends on the amount of workout, time spent with training and racing, weather, physical condition, difficulty in the track, physical parameters.
But it’s also a ready-made solution to blend all of this together, simply by providing a user guide for my collaborative partner,
the Enduraid Refreshing Designer mobile app, which I have been using for a while for trainings and competitions.
We can help with the refreshing! But only you can do the training!
