It's a VERY long video, almost one hour.
Listen to it 5 or 10 minutes at a time.
The video presents the findings of a study by Oxford University about:
- sports drinks
- running shoes- dehydration
The journalist points out the challenge of science versus show biz.
Questions / observations raised include:
Are sports drinks better than water?
What is the value of low calorie sports drinks, if the benefit from sports drinks are the
carbohydrates and they have been eliminated in low calorie sports drinks?
The most important factors related to reducing injury during running include:
distance, recovery time, intensity.
The video, although not light, does include some humorous points:
11:30 - Jam on bread.
31:09 - Humans are the only animal that needs to be told how much to drink.
Jay's 2 cents:
- Use common sense
- Try to be consistent
