Who are you? Introduce yourself to our community.
I'm Tim, a secondary school History teacher working in Yarm North Yorkshire. I'm a keen runner in my spare time and have just finished a 16 week marathon prep leading into the 2023 Yorkshire Marathon.
What inspired you to give Caffeine Bullet a try?
To be honest I can't remember, I think it may have been an ad on social media, so I thought why not I'll give those a try! Ordered a trial pack and have now been using them regularly to help with training and races for the last 6 months.
How did you find the taste and ease of use of our products?
They're such a simple product, not only do they taste great but they are so easy to use while out running, even when running quickly. I tend to pop one in and slide it between my teeth and gums and just leave it there to dissolve.
How has Caffeine Bullet played a part in your journey to smash your personal bests?
I've been training hard to run a marathon PB and Caffeine Bullets have been a part of that strategy. Whether it's having one before a 5am run or using them as part of a long run they are great.
For the Yorkshire Marathon just gone I had no caffeine pre race and then had 3 chews (300mg of caffeine) between 18 and 23 miles. My final 6 mile/10k split was the fastest of the race and I was surprised and delighted to finish with a massive PB of 2 hours 46 minutes 14 seconds.
For those considering trying Caffeine Bullet, what advice would you share?
Make sure you get used to them in training, if you have low caffeine intake normally start with one.
Don't take them too close to bedtime! Consider using them for the final stages of a big race, they make a MASSIVE difference.
The energy release is almost instant especially if you pop them down between your teeth and gums.
