People often ask us how others use Hammer products.
Well, one of our sponsored athletes is multisport event athlete Andrew Renwick.
Andrew’s been kind enough to send through some notes on what he’s been doing and how he’s been fueling up for these events.
Take it away Andrew:
3 weekends ago we took on the Kathmandu adventure race in Glenbrook – a sprint distance adventure race with winning teams coming in around 3hrs. On the Hammer front I fueled solely with Perpetuem (as is my plan for Triple Triathlon later this year) and as per usual it held me in good stead for the duration. I also got to try Perpetuem Solids for the first time
They are fantastic! Well done on a great product, easy to eat, tasty and they deliver.
Yesterday was the Akuna Bay Multisport, an epic event with road riding, kayaking and running around Garrigal and Kuringai National Parks. The race provided another solid test for my Triple Tri fuelling strategy:
- Breakfast: HEED
- 1hr bike leg: HEED
- 1h15 kayak leg: Perpetuem (2 scoops in 700mls)
- 1h20 run leg: Perpetuem (2 scoops in Hammer gel flask)
Energy levels were consistent throughout the race and best of all, no GI trouble. Thanks Hammer!
