For the majority of athletes, no need to supplement during sport. 

Interesting, I might have to test that out on my longer runs.

Right now my longest run has been 8 miles, but as I train for the half and full marathon, I want to start looking into what I will need to supplement my energy throughout the runs.  For the 8 mile run all I used was water on the run.  Recently I did a 2 mile trail run in the AZ heat with a lot of elevation increase and I really dehydrated myself.  That is why I thought i needed more electrolytes.

In my opinion, you need calories and fuel. 

 

Some interesting thoughts, all of which I've followed for years, and all of which the runners of the 70's-80's have always followed: http://www.irunfar.c...ering-book.html

For runs lasting longer than an hour, I'll eat a Clif Bar an hour or two before I start, then alternate sips of water and Gatorade/Powerade during the run. (I bring one 8 oz. bottle of each, but I don't always get through them - I just drink when I'm thirsty.) I also have a protein shake right after - the full scoop size if I'm mixing with water, or about 2/3 the scoop size if I'm mixing with milk. And a daily multivitamin. I haven't tried eating or using gels during a run, but I might next weekend when I bump my distance up to 17 miles. That's it on my end - no creatine, no pre-workout/recovery drinks, no fish oil, or any of that other stuff.

I'm new here and returning to running after a long illness. Most of my work is recovery and getting into shape to train, sort of. 

 

Right now I'm doing 1-3 hour sessions on the stair climber getting ready to switch to running on the flat roads. I've discovered that I need some help with energy and I've found that Tailwind works for me. I've tried other schemes and products but most upset my stomach. I'm too old to run fast any more so running long is my future.

I just bought BCAA from here and this is the only supplement I use after running. Significantly accelerates muscle recovery.

I have not used the supplement yet. But thinking to try it out once for weight loss.

I find iron supplements really help to improve my proformance becasue they can help increase your red blood cell count, allowing your body to process more oxygen
