MATT RYLATT TRIATHLETE
PH hydrated Ironman
I've been doing triathlon for over 10 years now up to GB age group level and, over that time, I've sometimes found my quads or calves getting painful and cramping up towards the end of races. I know I sweat a lot, but didn't know how much salt I lost from it. I decided to get a 'sweat test' done with PH, and it concluded I was just over half way on the scale, which was useful to know, as was being matched up with the correctly balanced hydration products. Since then, I've done a lot of training and racing over distances ranging from sprint to Ironman. I've taken the PH products; PH 1000 powders or tabs during training and racing and 1500 as preparation, plus the salt capsules during races when I've only been able to access water on the course. Now, I've been training hard, so that in itself has undoubtedly contributed to me getting fitter and stronger and, perhaps, able to fend off cramp, so when asked if the PH products were 'working', I held back judgement. However, I do like the PH drinks and felt I had the science behind using them, and trusted they would be of benefit. And, reviewing my progress now, I do feel they have helped me, and I simply haven't had any problem with cramp. Most recently I completed my first 'Ironman' triathlon and am sure the PH hydration products (which was all I used) played a big role in me getting round the course in remarkably good condition, right to the end (winning my age group). I've also appreciated the good articles I've been sent, so many thanks.
