Doing my 1st and 2nd 70.3's at Wimbleball and Lake District this year. Can anybody clear up a nutritional question? Is it normal practice to drink carb sports drinks at the same time as ingesting energy gels. Had some digestive discomfort doing this in the past but I don't know whether it's just a case of not taking one straight after the other or not even mixing them in the same race! How long a gap do you leave after an energy gel before supping some sports drink?
