In a true ‘acid test’ for CurraNZ, we were proud to be part of two Guinness World Records involving some serious feats of human endurance.
Staffordshire’s Andy Stone (right) kicked it off by completing 70 consecutive Half Ironman triathlons in just over 70 days on Friday, June 17.
The relative newcomer to triathlon was recommended CurraNZ by LJMU nutritionist, Dr Juliette Strauss, when fatigue and recovery became a problem almost halfway through his 5,000-mile challenge.
With its endurance, fat oxidation and muscle recovery benefits, CurraNZ fit the bill for Andy’s daily 70.3-mile slog.
Andy said: “I was using CurraNZ three times a day since day 34 and I’m super impressed by how less tired I felt at the end of each day, which helped me mentally too. I also noticed my legs were less tight too.
“Incredibly, it seems I’m a big responder, as on my first day using CurraNZ, I was shocked to see I recorded PBs for my swim and bike.”
12 Londoners set new record for longest continual workout over 40 hours - the 'Longest Day'
Fast-forward to June 22, and a team of 12 from Manor Gym in London set a new record for the longest continual workout of 40 hours - 'The Longest Day, 2022'.
Mimi Gardner (left), fresh from a bronze medal at the Hyrox World Championships in the US in May, was one of the 12-person team who took on the 40-hour challenge.
She reported afterward: “It was a blast and I had endless energy. We all did. We did amazingly well and I am feeling physically really well.
“The team have loved using CurraNZ, which has been crucial in helping our endurance, reduce fatigue and of course, recovery to battle through.”
