HAPPY FRIYAY! Finally! This week was equally long and short. Don't tell that's not possible, because it most definitely IS. I wanted to share a few of my favorite pre- long run (or race day) nutrition products with you today. I mainly stick with all natural products before my longer runs (but have a pretty strong stomach and have definitely eaten some crazy things before shorter runs...sandwiches, eggs, waffles, ice cream..you get the picture) that has a mixture of carbs/protein/sugar. I typically also have atleast a half of banana (if not a whole one) about an hour before my run and try to eat 1.5-2 hours before heading out for the race/long run.
- Nuun Active Electrolytes with Energy (caffeine)
- Nature's Path Instant Oatmeal Maple & Brown Sugar (these are AWESOME to travel with!!)
Do you have any favorites for pre-race or long run fueling?
Any special tactics you have for eating before a big race (1, 2, or 3 hours beforehand)?
Favorite fuels that work well when you travel to a race or do you find them once you get there?
