Btw, if you don’t know what Powerade is, maybe you live in another planet. To know more about Powerade, read on…

Note: Those in parentheses and in Italics are my comments

WHAT IS POWERADE?

  • Powerade is a scientifically formulated sports drink
  • It not only quenches your thirst but also replenishes lost fluid and electrolytes in the body after exercise or any physical activity
  • Fluid replacement is important as it compensates for those which are lost during perspiration or sweating (specially for athletes like us)
  • It’s just 84 calories per (250 mL) serving unlike other sugared drinks which people consume when they are at the gym or when in sports Powerade is a Global brand from the Coca-Cola Company
  • It is made by the Coca-Cola company and is the official sports drink of the Olympic Games and the official hydrators of the 2010 FIFA World Cup
  • Available in three flavors – Berry Ice (red), Mountain Blast (blue) and Orange Burst (orange) to encourage people to drink enough fluids in the form of a sports drink (I like the Moutain Blast flavor the most)

 

Powerade Flavors (Mountain Blast, Berry, Orange)

 

Why are Electrolytes and Carbohydrates Important?

  • Electrolytes are ions which have special functions in our body. Powerade currently has two  – sodium and potassium which help drive thirst and promotes water balance in your system. (Sodium and Potassium are very important nutrients for an athlete)
  • These help prevent being short of breath and muscle cramps so in the end make you become your best self and do better.
  • Carbohydrates in sports drink, in the form of sugar, will give you sustained energy in your sports or exercise and keep those muscles working
  • Water alone will not provide these support to step-up your game and keep playing. (I agree)
  • Athlete  can talk about his personal experience about it during practice/training and while at the game

Is Powerade and Energy Drinks the same?

Though almost all energy drinks give you the promise of feeling energetic and alive to do more, it does not really give your body electrolytes, which are necessary to keeping you hydrated.  You may be able to get a kick out of energy drinks, but you will not have the sustained energy to be able to kick that extra goal unless you drink a sports drink like Powerade.

Why is it important not to get dehydrated?

Dehydration makes exercise feel harder because your heart has to beat faster to get the oxygen and fuel to your muscles that they need. Dehydration can also result in your body temperature increasing during exercise. Sports drinks such as Powerade help to keep your body cool during exercise.

To avoid dehydration and get the most out of yourself and your sports drink, you should drink before, during and after sport. Before sport it is important to hydrate yourself and get fluid into the body. Regular replacement of fluid is the main consideration during any sports event. This can be in the form of plain water for shorter bouts of exercise, but for longer events the fluid should also include small amounts of carbohydrate and electrolytes. Drinking it after a strenuous exercise will help you recover fast so you are ready for the next game.

 

How much should I drink to get hydrated?

Before you can win, you need to know how much you lose. Get on the scales. Weigh yourself, immediately before and after exercise, you’ll get a good idea of how much fluid you actually lose during exercise. The difference in weight is all the fluid you need to replace.

RWTL Level Up Race Kit and Reflectorized Slap Bracelet Winners

April 15th, 2011 8 comments

My apologies for the late announcement of winners:

Here’s the winners of the free race kits plus 1 reflectorized slap bracelet:

Elvin Evalla

Tin Sayson

Weng Calanog

You can now get your (1) free race kit (any distance) at the Run with the Light booth, Athlete’s Foot or Planet Sports ATC Branches.

Among the many comments received, here are the 7 best answers our judges chose:

I love running during the night because I have insomnia because of running and training at night (courtesy of ANR Ayala Tri), I was able to sleep well -Zaldy Santillan

I love running at night because I feel so alive at night and my running buddy works every morning so we only have a chance to run at night. -engels precillas

“I love running during the NIGHT because it takes away all the stress I have during the DAY” –Addison


I love running in the night because I will be able to close the day worry-free by releasing all my stress away!
-Deng

I always love night runs on weekdays, around 3x a week. It is my way of releasing the stress from a whole day of work at the office. I’ve tried morning runs but it weakens my productivity (inaantok ako sa office or slacker mode maghapon). May times din na naka-uniform na ako pero lumalabas pa din ang pawis ko. Hehe –edongski

I love running during the night because it makes me feel nostalgic and I don’t know why. I just love the nostalgia feeling. Plus I am a shy person I don’t want people to see me in broad daylight. =D –BPS

I love running during the night because they’re calmer, quieter & stress-free. I feel that running at night seems more kind of like a reward to a long day. You don’t need to worry about time. Its like starting your day all over again because I released all those negative thoughts. –Krizzia Villaverde
 

Each one of you won one (1) reflectorized slap bracelet. Please claim it at Athlete’s Foot or Planet Sports ATC Branch.

Enjoy your night runs with your new bracelet. Run safe!

The reflectorized slap bracelets will be available on RWTL Level Up raceday at Php100/each.
