Week 13, 2011 training summary


Very tough week.  I was trying a new drink called MiO.  DO NOT TRY IT!!!  After 3 days of drinking it I went on a hot 14 miler on Wednesday and thought I was going to die. (yes, really) Not only did it super dehydrate me, but I also had a headache, unstable heart rate, and was completely drained.  I repeat…DO NOT DRINK MiO.  It uses Splenda as its sweetener, so had zero calories.  However, I have done some research and found that Splenda has had practically no testing done on it. (maybe only 9, compared to thousands for sugar)  And ZERO of those tests were done for long term affects.  I also found that this stuff actually just sits in your organs (liver, kidney, etc.) until your body finally cleans it out.  BAD STUFF!!!

    I too had a very bad reaction to Mio. I thought it was delicious but ended up with migraine like headaches after drinking it! Found out that it contains another sweetener called acesulfame which causes headaches of course plus cancer, liver failure and more! I threw my Mio away immediately!

    Wow – I’ve been using it for a few weeks and have had horrible headaches two. Just started putting 2 and 2 together. Stinks because it takes really good!
