i'm trying to make sure this race doesn't go down the same tubes as the last one. i got cramps and a stitch.
on saturday i have a rather important (televised on sky sports) XC race. it's 5k for me, but i don't know exactly how to prep for it in terms of eating the night and morning before.
any experienced runners who can help me with their ..well.......more experience?
what works for you?
least offensive foods?
any help and suggestions welcome,
and btw, the race starts at 1.30pm so i have time for breakfast. should i just fuel up then, or eat up the night before and have a light brekfast?
