I did my first ever ten mile run the past Saturday. Around mile six, I could feel my stomach growling! I was not sure what to eat for breakfast before the run. I wanted to eat something to fuel the run, but not to much that it would upset my stomach. I decided on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I decided against my usually morning coffee because I did not want to much in my stomach. It seems like the PB&J was not enough. I chose PB&J because it had a good mix of carbs, protein and fat. I had several gel packs in my SPI, but could not take one of them during my run. I did take one right before, but while running I did not feel up for a gel. I have been thinking about what to eat during a run that would be portable enough to put into my SPIbelt to fuel my next long run. So far, I got:
Do you have any other ideas? What do you carry with you to fuel your long runs? What do you eat before a long race?
A dream is a wish…
