    What do you eat prior to your run in the morning?

    I just drink coffee. As soon as that caffeine kicks in, I'm ready to move.

    It depends. Sometimes I have to run so bad that I don't have time to eat first.

    Oh wait...were you talking about a different type of run? icon_razz.gif

    I don't eat prior to my run in the mornings usually. Some runs i feel not so energetic but I push and usually replenish fluids, etc. afterwards for my runs later in the day/night.

    Nothing! I eat after though. Usually I have enough energy for a job, and I have fallen into that delusion that I burn more fat :/

    (Unless it's not a delusion then SCORE!)

    Steel cut oats or Kashi Go Lean cereal if I'm in a hurry.

    Carbs and fat are the fuel supply for ATP conversion during aerobic exercise.

    Nothing. Just a glass or two of water.

    Not much. Just a couple of spoonfuls of lowfat yogurt and water.

    Coffee, a bit of powdered protein mixed with some water, and a handful of whatever cereal I have lying around.

    If I have anything more than that, though, there's a good chance I'll see it all again halfway through my run. And guaranteed it won't look as appetizing.

    Same here. I never have been able to do serious cv work with anything other than liquid in my stomach.

    Nothing. I like to think the previous night's dinner is powering me through...
