Items To Help Finish The Marathon


The Mission To A(nother) Marathon blog recently published the results of using some products that might help you finish your next race.

Of significant interest to me was the report on the use of a salt tablet product. I'm often asked about salt tablets and I'm not sure what to say as I have not tried them. However, I'm told by a variety of athletes that they can be helpful in particularly hot and humid weather. Check out this post and judge for yourself.

To find out more about the use of salt tablets, check out this post from World of Sports Science.

I've never heard of these salt sticks, but I do know in warm marathons, small packets of salt are given to runners to help restore all that is lost through sweat. You must be careful, though, and experiment before a race (as you know from being a coach).

Great comment, Anne. That's absolutely right - try before using in an event. And that goes for not only salt products, but anything you might use - gels, drinks, etc. THANKS!
