What Should I Eat Before Running?
Normally before a run of 3-7 miles I will eat a handful of cereal or a few bites of something random. A lot of people ask what I eat before mid-week runs since it usually gets undocumented on RER, but it’s nothing exciting…
I don’t usually wake up hungry
because I’m a night eater so it’s not very substantial.
This is what I also eat before races. It’s super easy to pack and my body is already uses to it from training. Oh, and I totally love eating it too (This picture was taken in my hotel room before RnR Phoenix.)
But today I was supposed to meet Bobbi at 10am. That meant the time between eating and running would be a longer than normal. Plus, I wasn’t really craving PB toast.
So, I decided to try and eat PB Toast soaked in egg before my run, AKA – French Toast
Puddle of syrup
I hope the addition of egg and sf syrup does jack up my stomach. God help me if it does since I don’t think there are any bathrooms on the route we’re doing! I love putting PB on something warm so it gets all drippy…
See ya in a bit!
Question: Can you eat anything before exercising? Or is your stomach sensitive and can handle only specific things?
