Just throwing this out there to gain a little knowledge on what you folks eat and drink prior to your general daily runs. I'd be interested to know what variants are out there just to gain a little extra knowledge. I have been sticking to the banana or tea cake an hour before I go out and a glass of choc milk on my return? Thanks in advance for any kind soul who replies. Happy plodding!

Early training is done on an empty stomach (well, a pint of water but I'm not sure that counts). Porridge and / or bacon & eggs on my return, depending how far I've run.

Doesn't suit everyone.

The real difficulty is when you have to stop running for whatever reason, but don't stop the breakfasts! :-)

Bananas are good - I often eat one if I'm training later in the day. And flapjack - blackheart flapjack........

Usually have a bacon roll after parkrun with a latte. A bit of a calorie overload there, give that 5K for an 80kg runner is roughly 400 calories (1 calorie per KG per KM travelled).

I can happily eat a reasonable meal and go out running within an hour, even half an hour. This is probably a bit unusual though. If haven't had a meal, I'll have a biscuit or bit of cereal bar because I find it hard to run on nothing. Variously biscuit/cereal bar/toast/ coffee/ choc milk on return - if I don't dive straight into another meal. Oh, and beer.

(This may explain why I remain a bit of a porker, mind pig cow pint.)

Got something to say?
