Mid-Workout: Grab a Sports Drink or Gel

If you feel like you're on the edge or have officially bonked out, there's an easy cure: a sports drink. According to Runner's World, as little as 50 grams of carbohydrates can bring your brain back to normal in 10 or 15 minutes. Getting plenty of water is essential, but replenishing your body's electrolytes and glycogen levels with a smart sports drink, gel, or chew can help you skip the bonk and stay on course.
