How can I alleviate calf cramps?
CALF CRAMPS AND THEIR CAUSES
Q: I’ve experienced cramping in my right calf for years when I get to mile 12 of a long run or half-marathon.
The Web contains multiple references to E-Lyte Sport electrolyte replacement drink, which promises an end to cramping. Information I’ve read in the past seems to indicate that the causes of cramping remain uncertain and therefore I’m skeptical of a surefire remedy. I’d like to cease experiencing these calf cramps but I shy away from electrolyte overloading. After all, I use Gu and PowerBars, yet the cramps remain.
What’s your take on E-Lyte Sport?
