I’m finally starting to feel normal. Stayed up a bit too late last night playing CS:GO but managed to drag myself out of bed this morning without too much pain, and felt pretty awake most of the day. Picked up some cream soda and some ginger beer so that I can still drink something carbonated that’s more interesting than water.
Paid a visit to GNC in town as I was looking for a caffeine-free workout. The guys in the shop talked me into buying USN Creatine X4 – it was expensive at £30 a bottle, but I was suckered in by the promises of taurine and beta-alanine. However I looked the product up online and found very few positive reviews, if anything it was grossly overpriced, plus the type of creatine included was not monohydrate-based, so I decided to return it this morning.
To their credit, GNC didn’t give me any aggro on this at all, it was unopened so they just credited my account. I’ve now got my eye on Hemavol on Amazon now. Again, it’s £30, but Hemavol has mountains of blinding reviews so I know it’d probably my best option for a caffeine-free workout. I just want a decent pump with maybe a bit more endurance, rather than daily anxiety attacks and weird heart palpitations late at night.
In other news, Wildstar launched this morning and so far it seems very good. A few initial bugs on login but nothing serious, and my clan mate has already ground enough gold to form a guild for us ingame
