Hi I am running my second marathon next year. Fitness and experience wise I am a few year on from my last marathon so am excited about training hard and hopefully getting a much better time. The area I am concerned about and often let's me down on long runs is duelling the final few miles. I struggle to eatwords than 3 hours before I run, but my long runs will start around 8am. I am ok up to about 15 miles if I eat late at night (I have malt loaf and a banana etc before I go to bed) but beyond 15 miles I start to really suffer from lack of fuel. I have tried energy gels but Found the taste and texture awful! Plus I am not sure I took them at the right times. So advice please 1) which energy gel/sweets are good? 2) when to take them on long runs 3) what to eat before a run that won't give my a tummy upset!
