|Just think of all the fuel it can hold!|
And now a quick fuel question from AJH over at Age Groups Rock. She too has been dealing with injury rehab, so stop on over, give her a shout out, and enjoy her lovely photos of VT!
Q: Do you use Gu? I have been trying to figure out how not to make that messy. I am a klutz and have trouble opening it on the run and it is sticky too.A: I don't use Gu brand because I have trouble with the consistency (too thick), but I do use powergels (a little more liquidy i.e. messy). I too am a huge klutz and usually end-up with gel on my hands, face, shirt, and, upon occasion, pig-tails. I've kind of accepted that messy is just part of my fueling process (sorry, that's not much help). I've had trouble opening them as well esp when they have been riding around in my sweaty sports bra for an hour. I've found that nicking the side of the 'neck' part of the package just a little (not enough for the gel to actually come out or you will have a HUGE mess in your sportsbra after a few miles, trust me!) makes them worlds easier to open come fuelin' time. It give you just enough leverage to rip it open. Hope that helps, and thanks for the questions!
Good luck on your weekend adventures!
Anyone have big plans this weekend?
Happy weekend to all!
