say if you're set to meet up with others at 9am what do you have for breakfast before a long run? usually i just get up 2 hours before and have some granola or something but wondering on others' ideas. usually it's porridge for breakfast every morning but can't stomach it just before a long run....i'd have to leave it at least 2.5+ hours really.
i'm a pretty decent runner (within reason! sub 36min 10k) and doing around 40 miles/week at the moment but lately my "long runs" have only been 10-12 miles steady (7:30/mile) but i've been entered for a leg in a relay which is a very hilly 12.6 miles so tomorrow and the weekend after i'll be doing 14-16 mile runs just to get some extra time on my feet.
so come on....inspire me just something that isn't going to feel all "sloshy" in the stomach but still provides sustained energy for a long run. i'll probably take 2 gels for the run tomorrow....i can do 12-13 without any fluids/gels but any further it's a bit unwise really.
