Why don't I like it? Because it didn't work. I had a small tube in my handheld water bottle pouch and I tried to use it during a long run a few weeks ago. It seemed to work for about half an hour each time I applied - I would call it a failure, basically. SO, it's back to Body Glide. Except - what's that about Body Glide?

Body Glide... for her.
Oh, yes, that. Why don't I like it? Because it's pink so I know it's for me since I'm a girl! But it's the same product, only more expensive because... the pink dye used in the plastic cap is pricey or something? Or maybe they charge more because they can. (Just like women's disposable razors are obscenely more expensive than men's.)

Gu Brew Tablets
Oh, man oh man, how gross. I threw a tablet in my water bottle as I was heading out the door on Tuesday. It was hot, I was doing hill repeats, and I needed water with me. But this stuff - it was so gross. Sort of like Tang mixed with Crystal Light with a nasty aftertaste you couldn't shake.
To be fair, I have two tubes of this and I haven't thrown them away yet. It's mildly palatable as a post-run drink, so I'll keep it around. (Unlike Nathan Catalyst, which I tried and then promptly threw away.)
I feel like I'm supposed to like bikram because everyone does it. But you know what? I don't like it. I don't like the focus on pushing yourself further and harder into the poses, I don't like the hot room, and I don't like the fact that every class is always the exact same poses.
I have an unlimited pass to a local studio courtesy of Groupon, and I'll use it through July. But after that, I'm not sure that I'll be back to bikram for a while. And I think that maybe that's okay.
