If you're already fueling with sports gels or drinks, you probably get all the electrolytes you need. I wouldn't try anything new on race day -- no new foods, drinks, or salt tabs. Stick with your current fueling plan, and your body will be very happy!

I don't like gatorade or similar sports drinks. So that will not be raising my electrolytes.
Generally we aren't talking about large doses of salt. Yes I accept it.
