Skimming through Women’s Health mag, I came across an interesting read. According to researcher Savvas Tokmakidis of University of Thrace in Greece, runners should drink a beverage with water and approx. 74 grams of powdered glucose 15 minutes prior to exercising (running).  The study stated that glucose provides extra fuel for muscles and drinking 15 minutes prior is key because the insulin-glucose interaction peaks between 30-45 minutes into your run. Runners in the study ran 10 minutes longer and 1 mile further. Just thought you should know….JCF Boot Camp…let’s get fit!
