I am somewhat new to running :-) I am following Jeff Galloway's program and I am up to 55 minutes twice a week and on the third day I run a distance no matter how long it takes shocked

I am not new to this plumbing, but I am having a hard time figuring out what I need to eat before so I have the energy to get through the run. I am eating carbs but they are not highly processed and I am wondering if that is the issue. I am hydrating (Vitalyte...thanks suebear!) and that makes a difference...much better than plain water.

So I guess my question is: What do you eat??? And, how soon do you run after eating???

I actually dont usually eat before i do insanity, because i find it makes me feel icky.

I don't run but I do go out on long hikes in elevation. I always stick to protein as a morning meal. It holds me for a good 2 hours until snack time :)

I have a very active job (performing in parades and shows all day) and I find that just eating small meals of carbs and protien in between each show helps keep my energy up (and powerade and water, of course!).

I like sue"s answer...I dont run!.... tongue   I do quite a bit of outdoor activities and try to eat pasta to keep the energy up.
