Good, easy 6-mile run.

Picked up some Endurox EXCEL today and will start taking that on Monday, between then and the marathon, to see if that helps with recovery, long runs, energy, dropping a few pounds, etc., etc., etc. I’ve read a lot of good things about it from some of the top runners so I feel pretty confident that it will be a good thing and enhance my running experience.

This is what their website says: Endurox EXCEL contains maximum strength Endurox plus vitamin E. Endurox EXCEL slows the lactic acid buildup that causes muscle fatigue. Vitamin E has been shown to improve workout recovery by preventing the buildup of free radicals associated with muscle damage and soreness.

I am currently taking 400 I.U. of vitamin E daily but will replace that with the Endurox EXCEL beginning Monday on the days that I run. On the days that I don’t run I may just take the vitamin E. Haven’t really decided on that as of yet.

I am still using their recovery drink (just called Endurox) after long runs (10 miles or more) and have gotten used to the somewhat gritty taste — it’s sort of like thick Gatorade. I think I can credit that to the lack of soreness after the last 20-mile run.
