So, You have chosen your Running Workout Programme, now you need the fuel to power you through it… Here’s are some recommendations.
60 Minutes before you Run Eat...
Muesli / Granola Bar, Yogurt and a Banana
This mix is rich in fibre, protein and carbs, so you will get slow-release energy for as long as your legs are willing to carry you.
Note: I like Quaker’s Cookies and Cream Muesli bar best.
20 Minutes before you Run Eat…
Oats and Honey
Honey is complex sugar that gives long-lasting energy, while the oats give you slow-release energy for the latter parts of your pavement odyssey.
Note: Sometime I just take the 3 in 1 instant oat cereal with honey
5 Minutes before you Run Eat…
Handful of Jelly Beans (;
The sugar in these get metabolized almost straight away, so they’ll give you an instant energy hit to give you some extra boost.
Note: Too much (excessive) might cause “Sugar Rush”
Good Luck. Cheers (:
