Today, I finally decided to take my workout outside! It’s been so cold here in Boston, so I’ve been dying to get outside for a run. Last night I got the sudden urge to, but knew better because it was around 9pm, it’s really slippery outside, and I won’t run outside in the dark here in the city.
But. I’m starting to digress.
I had a lot of energy today, despite not sleeping too well. Last night, I picked up this nifty thing at Whole Foods and decided to try it today, before my run! It’s from Vega Sport, and it’s there sugar-free energizer, designed to prepare you for a short workout, which is exactly what I wanted it to be- a quick 2 miler (which ended up being about 2 and a quarter, but who’s counting?)
Honestly, I have no opinion on preworkout supplements, mainly because I don’t use them. Not for any particular reason, it’s just that I’m a college kid, and I’d rather spend my money on going out, food, clothes, gifts, etc. This guy was on sale for less than a dollar, so obviously that caught my attention. Marketing, man, let me tell ya, they getchya every time!
Because I can’t compare it to any pre-workout supplement I’ve had before, I can’t base it off of that, but I can tell you that my energy levels skyrocketed! Not too the point where I was jittery, but enough so that I could notice and was wicked stoked for my run. It was acai berry flavored, and came out looking like an orange powder. Because it was sugar free, it didn’t leave the best aftertaste in my mouth, especially since I haven’t had anything sugar free in a long time, so I’m not used to it. But in terms of energy, it did what it was designed to! In terms of taste, it could be better. Not bad, but there is definitely room for improvement, I think.
Have you ever tried this pre-workout supplement, or any other kind of supplement for before workouts? Let me know in the comments!
