Learning to be an endurance athlete with diabetes has always been tough.
Constantly checking blood sugar has always made me think of an appropriate sports cliché: "NEVER GETTING TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW" will help you be successful. Well, I really have to live that lifestyle.
Over the past year since I started my journey in this sport, I have been constantly looking for easy hydration and in race products to keep my training strong and races stronger. Since I started using Vitalyte products, I really have seen an increase in my ability to push my own limits... and I'm not just saying that.
I'm currently training for 2 major races in May. The ITU triathlon in San Diego May 12 and The Paratriathlon National Championships in Austin Texas MAY 29. I have been using Tri-phase endurance, which has totally amped up my energy levels over all. I've been training in Escondido, CA in an attempt to replicate the heat I may encounter in some of my races. On my longer runs, I've been loving Chia-Surge to keep my calories up without feeling full at all. Beyond that, the electrolyte replacement sticks have kept me hydrated and cool on some of the hotter (90+) days, allowing me to go for over an hour on hilly terrain! I'm more than excited to be a Vitalyte Brand Ambassador so keep an eye out for my blog posts in the months to come! Thank you to Vitalyte for your amazing products!!
