a little extra help
When the UK team met at Heathrow Airport on the way to the World Championships earlier this year Jim Rogers mentioned that he had read about a study promoting the benefits of beetroot juice for improving stamina in endurance running. I remember a few of us not taking him particularly seriously as he began drinking from a large bottle of the red stuff.
However, a couple of days later he ran a very good personal best and I began to take notice and find out for myself about this mysterious elixir.
The best report of the benefits of beetroot juice is on the NHS website and I'm now into my third day of my own trial. Obviously I won't know whether it worked until next week but it'll be in my report.
