#FuelYourBetter Campaign with Vega & #SweatPink

Just imagine my excitement when I was offered to review Vega thru my #SweatPink ambassadorship as part of the Fuel Your Better campaign!  I am not going to lie, I may have yelped a little.  I am a long time user of the Vega Sport Pre Workout Energizer.  I will not run more than 6 miles without having it.

So when I had the chance to try a different product, I immediately knew I wanted to try the Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator!  Long runs over 6 miles take a lot out of me.  I have 2 little kids who I would love to come home to with energy.

I have used the Recovery Accelerator a few times now after long runs and I feel less groggy and less wanting to take a nap!  I remembered to gear check a pack at the Coronado Bridge Run to make with the cold water after the race.

Believe me, I realize that both the pre workout and the Recovery are not very pretty!  But who cares? They taste fine, almost like a Creamsicle especially if you pour it into the bottle and shake vigorously!  No grit!  And I have always sworn by the Pre Workout and now, the Recovery!  I feel less sore, almost like the lactic acid hasn't had a chance to build up.  However it works, it works!

They come in boxes of 12 packs.  So for me, because I only do one long run a week, they last almost 12 weeks or 3 months!  You can buy a pack for $2.49 or a whole tub for $39.99.  The tubs last forever!  That is how I buy my Pre-Workout!

I also used the Vega Pre Workout as part of my Rock 'n' Roll San Diego Half Marathon prep.

And once again, I gear checked the Recovery Accelerator.  I wouldn't say I don't feel sore at all but I do feel less sore and had more energy yesterday after the Half Marathon!

I am super happy with the product I tested and it is a wonderful complement to my Pre Workout Energizer!  I am a die hard Vega fan for sure!  The Recovery Accelerator is now part of every post long run ritual!

Disclosure: I was provided with Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator free of charge through a campaign with Fit Approach / SweatPink. Rest assured all opinions expressed in this review are 100% honest and my own.

How do you #FuelYourBetter?  Have you tried any Vega products?

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom


  1. I use Vega products daily but I haven't tried the recovery accelerator...yet!

  2. Cool! I was just listening to an old No Meat Athlete episode as in the second one haha) with Matt interviewing Brenden Frazier. Made me want to get my book off the shelf; had forgotten about the recipes in there. Anyway, they were discussing the products you used.

    Happy Running!
